Back in the late 90s I would have killed to see the revival of Cabaret with Alan Cumming as the MC and Natasha Richardson as Sally Bowles. Well, guess what? The production was televised a few years ago and it's up on youtube! I can't embed, but if you're the least bit interested, go check it out. It's so much more raw and hard-hitting than the movie. Enjoy!

EDIT: To avoid any confusion, this version has Jane Horrocks as Sally.

Part One "Willkommen"
Part Two "So What"
Part Three "Mein Herr"
Part Four
Part Five "Perfectly Marvelous" "Two Ladies"
Part Six "It Couldn't Please Me More" "Tomorrow Belongs to Me"
Part Seven "Married"
Part Eight Alan's bum "Tomorrow Belongs to Me"
Part Nine "If You Could See Her"
Part Ten "What Would You Do?"
Part Eleven "I Don't Care Much" "Cabaret"
Part Twelve

Fantastic set of links, but you know that's not Natascha Richardson, that's Jane Horrocks? :D

Yes, I know, and I don't really like her interpretation of Sally. A little too THEATRE for me.

But Alan.....ummmmmmmm. ^_^

...watching it, I think I agree! And that's odd because I love Jane, but you're right, she's over-egging the pudding a bit in this role.

I think, albeit within the theatrical atmosphere of the club, Sally needs to provide a counterpoint to the MC and you don't get much more deliciously THEATRE than Mr Cumming in that role. :D

I know that Sally is supposed to be a mediocre chanteuse, so I think Jane got the singing parts just right, which is a fine line to walk. But Sally's insecure overconfidence came across as over-acting to me.

Yes, delicious Alan. *slurp*

I've got a friend who fell for him the same way. The pic is found in Websters under Yummeh. ^_~
