"These books by Keith Garebian are golden. Not only are they full of great insider anecdotes and hilarious stories, they also show you firsthand that musicals are an evolutionary art and 'classics' don't happen overnight. As they say, plays with music go into rehearsal and musicals come out of rehearsal."--Blogway Baby
"A lively and impossible-to-put-down study of one of the most disturbing and entertaining musicals of the 20th century. This book captures the passion and ingenuity of artists who sought to expand musical theatre's conventions and to challenge U.S. politics. Garebian balances facts and details of the musical's creation and reception with insightful interpretation of the music, lyrics, script, staging, and design. A model for musical theatre history, an exemplary case study, and the most important source on Cabaret to date, the new and improved The Making of Cabaret
updates and expands its terrific predecessor. An indispensible resource on a show that changed musical theatre forever."--Stacy Wolf, author of A Problem Like Maria: Gender and Sexuality in the American Musical
(2002) and Changed for Good: A Feminist History of the Broadway Musical
"This book is simply a wonderful read. Keith Garebian investigates the history of this extraordinary musical so elegantly and completely, you might think you had been there yourself for every production. The Making of Cabaret
is smart, witty, insightful and full of the spirit that has made this groundbreaking musical such an enduring work of art." --Amanda Dehnert, Theatre Director
"Keith Garebian deftly explores how the landmark concept musical 'Cabaret' came to be and examines its metamorphosis in Bob Fosse's Academy Award-winning film, the revelatory revision by Sam Mendes, and other revivals, persuasively arguing the many reasons why this disturbing musical has remained so popular."--Bud Coleman, University of Colorado at Boulder
"A marvelous job." --Hal Prince
"Entertaining and knowledgeable, it adds usefully to our understanding of creative processes... a thoroughly good read."--University of Leeds
"The Making of Cabaret
honors every artistic collaborator who has shaped Cabaret's
production history and makes good on Garebian's promise to "capture the collaborative excitement" involved in producing one of the greatest musicals of the twentieth century. The book is enriched by Garebian's intricate research, which relies on a wide variety of updated sources, including print, radio, and video interviews, letters, biographies, reviews, original drafts and designs, videotaped performances, academic essays, photographs, and program notes. His jargon-free analysis of the musical and its various productions make this 'compendious reference' a resource suited to dramaturgs, theatre historians, directors, and musical theatre enthusiasts (xiii)."--Theatre History Studies
