Sunday, February 12
Boston Opera House, Boston, MA

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd––and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times? Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including "Cabaret," "Willkommen" and "Maybe This Time." Right this way, your table's waiting at Cabaret, John Kander, Fred Ebb And Joe Masteroff's Tony-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way. Please note: Cabaret contains mature content.

Friday, December 9
7:30 p.m.
$37 (reg. $64/peak ticketing)
Sanders Theatre, Cambridge, MA

A holiday tradition for more than four decades, The Christmas Revels is a joyful theatrical celebration of the winter solstice that travels the world each year showcasing cultural traditions including music, dance, folktales and rituals. This year's Revels follows the original French immigrants who settled on the Canadian border but were later forced southward by the British to a new home along the bayous of Louisiana. Filled with toe-tapping fiddle tunes, lilting Cajun two steps, gorgoeus anthems, and familiar touchstones like the Sussex Mummers Carol and Lord of the Dance, this will be a Christmas Revels to remember.

From Glenn Miller's Chattanooga Choo-Choo to Wynton Marsalis' Big Train, the everyday, ordinary sounds of trains have inspired some of the greatest jazz compositions of the 20th century.
