As we moved even closer to tech, my journalistic call was back again. This time, my victim-- I mean, my subject -- is the lovely Rebecca Sohn, playing the toast of Mayfair, Sally Bowles!
Rebecca and I snuck into a hallway for a quick interview during one of our last full run through before tech. See her insights below!
K: What was your first CABARET?
R: The first version I saw? Liza Minnelli -- the film.
I never saw it on stage. I wish I had, but I never did, and now I’ve just seen clips of productions here and there.
K: What is your favorite song in CABARET?
R: It’s so packed with songs – truly, I love every song so much…but I really love "Money". I mean…I love money like I love cash, and I also love that song. I think it’s so good – but, honestly, that’s such a tough question because there are so many great songs in [the show]. That’s why I like it.
K: Why this story now?
R: Oh, well, gosh. Isn’t it obvious? We are back here again…In a huge way. It’s incredibly timely, and the world keeps changing. We’ve made an enormous amount of progress, but now we’re going so far back in time. It’s…it’s maddening.
