I was in Chicago over the weekend to visit family and attend the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill.

Cabaret is one of my favorite musicals, but somehow I’d never managed to see the live theater version starring Alan Cumming as the Emcee. Not in 1993, when he did it in London, nor in 1998 on Broadway. Well, he’s back in his star-making role — only through March — at Studio 54 and I […]
