The start of the summer season means that there is so much going on in Niagara! Recently, as part of their Tourism night, the Shaw Festival invited us to watch Cabaret in the Festival Theatre in the heart of downtown Niagara on the Lake.
What an amazing evening! From our picture being taken in the main hallway, to the lovely drinks offered by Konzelmann, one of Niagara’s many beautiful wineries – the evening was as picture perfect as one would expect from such a stunning location.
What a show! Cabaret is a moving play revolving around the ups and down of the often tumultuous relationship of an American writer in Berlin and nightclub singer Sally Bowles, during a time when the world is about to turn upside down with the rise of Hitler. Caberet is “hailed as a rare musical that both challenges and entertains” (Shaw Festival website). The acting was superb, and we are still humming the incredible music in our heads.
The 2014 season is in full swing, with shows like The Philadelphia Story, The Charity That Began at Home, Arms and the Man, When We Are Married, and so many more. For a truly enchanting day or evening, going to the Shaw Festival is a must do this summer, for tourists and locals alike.
Please visit the Shaw Festival website for more information on show times, ticket prices, and so much more.
Thank you Shaw Fest for a great night – we had a blast!
