SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- (Good Things Utah) University of Utah Theatre is finally showing a classic, ‘Cabaret’. This is a first for the university’s theatre department. Three actors from the show, Hannah Staudinger, Ella Murphy and Caleb Hunt came to the studio to talk about the show as well as give us a little sneak peek.
The beloved classic takes place during the Great Depression and starts on New Years Eve 1929 in Berlin, Germany and shows the relationship between Sally and Cliff, portrayed by Staudinger and Hunt, respectively. It also shows how people act during pressing times. In addition to hearing from the leads, we also got an incredible live performance from Staudinger, who sang “Maybe This Time.”
