Playbill.com reports that the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Cabaret, which has enjoyed a longer run than the show's original 1966 production, will close November 2. The revival, which has been running since March 19, 1998, at Studio 54, was directed by Sam Mendes and out Oscar nominee Rob Marshall (Cabaret). The original cast featured out actors Alan Cumming (who won a Tony as the Emcee) and John Benjamin Hickey (soon to be seen on ABC's It's All Relative), and subsequent casts have included such favorites of gays and lesbians as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Joely Fisher, Michael C. Hall, Neil Patrick Harris, Gina Gershon, Katie Finneran, Brooke Shields, Jon Secada, Deborah Gibson, and Molly Ringwald. After the final show, the Cabaret revival will have run for 2,306 performances and 37 previews.
The Roundabout has purchased the venerable gay disco as a permanent theater space and plans to mount a new revival of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins there, to be directed by out director Joe Mantello (Take Me Out).
