Oh, those naughty girls of the Kit Kat Klub theyre back and lovelier than ever in the brand-new, totally revamped revival of Cabaret from Theatre Under the Stars. According to Lauren Lovell, TUTSs public relations manager, the revival of the musical about a German club in the 1930s is brighter and more glittery than past productions. Extensive research shows that German cabarets of the time were more flashy, more Vegas-like than the skanky clubs imagined in older productions. So the TUTS production team has come up with a sparkly fantasy world that makes what happens when the Nazis come along that much more poignant. (Dont worry, Sally Bowles still sings up a storm and all that Tony Award-winning music is intact.) Enjoy the glitz at 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Through June 28. Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-558-2600 or visit www.tuts.com. $32 to $150.
