Enter the tantalizing world of The Kit Kat Klub in 1930s Berlin, where beguiling, self-destructive chanteuse Sally Bowles lives with no thought for tomorrow. One of the defining musicals of all time, Cabaret intertwines social history with dazzling entertainment in new and dangerous ways. The decadence of a Weimar nightclub becomes a shattered mirror reflecting a society spiraling toward disaster with the rise of Hitler’s Nazis. Hosted with lascivious charm by the Emcee, played by Obie Award-winning Taylor Mac (PRC2 The Young Ladies Of…). Tickets start at $15.

By popular demand, the Ackland Art Museum at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is again presenting “ekphrastic theater” in its galleries. Through an upcoming series of live theater performances titled “ACTIVATED ART,” works of art in the Ackland’s permanent collection may be experienced in unexpected and thought-provoking ways. The plays will be performed in the Ackland’s galleries, in front of the art that inspired them. A discussion with the playwrights and directors follows the two Friday evening performances. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the Ackland Museum Store, on the corner of Franklin and Columbia Streets, in downtown Chapel Hill, or by phone at 919-962-0216.
