CABBARET is the story of ABBA ‘de-flared’ and stripped naked.
Cabbaret takes you on a ABBA journey through the Seventies …. The Songs , The Stories, The Seduction.
Behind the sickly sweet melodies of the some of the most successfully written pop songs, lay the sordid tales, the mystery and the genius behind the biggest super group of all time.
What was behind their success? How did it all start and when did it all start to unravel? Join us as we say ”Thank you for the music” in an evening that celebrates the song writers and the songs we all know and love, as well as some of the rarely heard B sides and the diamonds in the rough.. Lurking gently like an explosive force to be reckoned with!
Join Debora Krizak as she takes you on this “Fabba-lous” musical journey, backed by some of the country’s best musicians- for a toe-tapping, musically enlightening and ‘tragically’ funny insight into the workings of one of the most memorable acts in history.
