GO GET YOUR HOLIDAY ON!!!! SEE YOU THERE!!

"The star of this yuletide cabaret show is statuesque singer Meghan Murphy, who has hair the color of merlot and a big voice that can be brassy, soulful, or plaintive as the occasion merits. Performing a nicely balanced selection of show tunes, original material, and R&B, she skips the usual Perry Como crap, focusing instead on the Christmas-related experiences of city dwellers, single women, and gay men. The results are funny and heartwarming without getting cynical or schmaltzy, owing to Murphy’s considerable charisma, jolly shamelessness, and, at times, vulnerability. She’s accompanied by a three-piece band of multi-instrumentalists and Patrick Andrews, who serves as a kind of backup singer/go-go boy."

CABARET

CABARET

Paramount Theater (map)

BOOK BY JOE MASTEROFF. BASED ON THE PLAY BY JOHN VAN DRUTEN AND STORIES BY CHRISTOPHER ISHERWOOD. MUSIC BY JOHN KANDER. LYRICS BY FRED EBB. DIRECTED BY KATIE SPELMAN.

The sound of the orchestra tuning its instruments fills the air. The smell of liquor and perfume permeates your nostrils, causing a shiver of sinful delight. You catch a dancer’s eye and wonder what she’s doing after the show. After all, life is a cabaret, and anything goes.

It’s the early 1930s in Berlin, and life is changing. On the horizon is an ugly and dangerous threat, but that’s no concern for sensational cabaret singer Sally Bowles whose only goal in life is to have a good time. Sally soon finds herself living with a young writer visiting from America to work on a new novel. While their relationship moves beyond just being friends, around them the lives of citizens go from ordinary to a nightmare. Will Sally recognize her own selfishness, or will she look to the ground as the Nazis steamroll over everything she holds dear?

Cabaret is one of the most well-known Broadway musicals of all time, and it’s because of the extraordinary songs, universal appeal and a spellbinding story that still holds true in today’s world. Nominated for a total of 26 Tony Awards over three decades and winning a total of 12 including Best Musical and Best Revival of a Musical, Cabaret is exactly what musical theatre should be: entertaining, enlightening, provocative, edgy and a continuing reflection of our own lives. This groundbreaking musical was unlike anything audiences had seen back when it first premiered, and you’ll feel the same way when it hits the Paramount stage.

RUNNING FEB 7TH-MARCH 18TH @ PARAMOUNT THEATER

“Statuesque singer Meghan Murphy, who has hair the color of merlot and a big voice that can be brassy, soulful, or plaintive as the occasion merits...The results are funny and heartwarming without getting cynical or schmaltzy, owing to Murphy’s considerable charisma, jolly shamelessness, and, at times, vulnerability. Highly recommended.” -Chicago Reader

“Meghan (Big Red) is the most versatile and organic vocalist in Chicago. There’s not a genre she can’t sing and make it sound as if the song wasn’t written expressly for her. So many singers can be put into categories, “pop singer,” “cabaret singer,” “rock singer,” but Meghan covers every genre her vocal chords take on and does it seamlessly.” -Windy City Times

“Meghan Murphy has the pipes and personality that has entertained crowds for years. If you haven’t seen ‘Big Red’ take over a room yet, what are you waiting for?” -Windy City Times
