The strength of this Cabaret show lies within its theme of inclusion and responsibility for each other’s well-being. Coupled with arrangements that turn Broadway songs degrees from the comfort of recordings we love to replay and song-stylists who do more than stand and deliver, CabarGay earns standout status. The opening number from “Song of Mormon” promises a cure-all to change our lives. But we know better—the validity of selfhood comes from the reserve within; being alert to the nuances of relationships, grasping the moment, recognizing the immensity of a single action multiplied. The best of Broadway entertains with a kick— “It Only Takes a Moment” (Hello Dolly),“I’m Beautiful” (The Color Purple, “We must not forget they are our children too” (Miss Saigon) “Life will be forever on a perfect day” (Dear Evan Hansen); the power resonates. There's more, including a bonus that kicks up the tempo.
