Cabaret” with Eddie Redmayne and Gayle Rankin


Eddie Redmayne and Gayle Rankin Set to Ignite Broadway in “Cabaret” at the Kit Kat Club: A Night of Decadence and Delight

In a groundbreaking announcement, Broadway is set to be graced by the star power of Academy Award® and Tony Award® winner Eddie Redmayne and the extraordinary Gayle Rankin in the highly anticipated production of "Cabaret" at the Kit Kat Club. Directed by the renowned Olivier Award® winner Rebecca Frecknall and designed by Tony Award nominee Tom Scutt, this visionary rendition of the classic musical promises an unparalleled night of decadence and delight.

Performances for “Cabaret” at the Kit Kat Club will kick off on Monday, April 1, 2024, at the illustrious August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd Street). The show will debut with a bang, hosting twin gala opening nights on Saturday, April 20, and Sunday, April 21.

When this production first graced the stage in London's West End, it sent shockwaves through the theatre community, hailed as “a kill-for-a-ticket theatrical triumph” by critics (The Telegraph). This revolutionary adaptation of "Cabaret" went on to clinch seven Olivier Awards, making history as the musical revival with the most Olivier wins.

In this thrilling rendition of Cabaret, the creative team plans to transform the August Wilson Theatre into the iconic Kit Kat Club, creating an immersive experience for the audience. The theatre will be reimagined as an in-the-round auditorium with sinfully dreamlike spaces for guests to explore. The audience will have the opportunity to indulge in pre-show entertainment, drinks, and dining. Ticket holders will receive a designated "club entry time," allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the world of the club before the show commences.

Eddie Redmayne, who will reprise his Olivier Award-winning role as ‘The Emcee,’ expressed his excitement: “I am beyond excited to be doing it arm-in-arm with the remarkable Gayle Rankin and a truly stunning cast and team. I am hoping we will create an experience for you quite unlike any other.”

Gayle Rankin, taking on the role of ‘Sally Bowles,’ shared her profound connection to the production: “I am completely honored to hold hands with Sally inside of this singular, powerful production, and forever grateful to Rebecca, Eddie, and the whole family for inviting me into its creation on Broadway.”

The visionary Tom Scutt, responsible for the club's design, teased about the evolution of the Kit Kat Club: “Cabaret NYC promises to be a totally unique melting pot of an experience.”

Tickets for Cabaret will be available for purchase until Saturday, March 29, 2025, with Redmayne and Rankin scheduled to perform until Saturday, August 31, 2024. Starting Monday, June 17, 2024, Redmayne will not perform on Monday evenings, and Rankin will not perform at Wednesday matinees.
