Wednesday, January 14
If you think our national landscape is in an unsettling state of turmoil, imagine Germany in the 1930s. Millions of unemployed Berliners roamed the streets of the capital, fomenting political unrest. Cabaret, the Tony Award-winning musical, examines this era in the dim light of the Kit-Kat Club, a nightspot where on stage, anything goes. It's playing at the Great Caruso Dinner Theater, a venue as well known for its food as its productions. When you mix in a three-course dinner with drinks, the risqué revue becomes the perfect mix between high culture and good ol' fashioned livin' it up. Now there's no longer any need to beat yourself up about having a good time (unless you're into that kind of thing). 7:30 p.m. today. Playing Wednesdays through Sundays, January 9 through April 25. 10001 Westheimer. For information and showtimes, call 713-780-4900 or visit www.houstondinnertheater.com. $35 to $40 for dinner and show.
