Fabulosity, Thy Name is High School
So, did I mention that Petra was FABULOUS in Cabaret? Behold, Petra and her buddy J., who came to be known among castmates as "the sexy old couple." Awwwwwww!
She made we weep. Her performance was restrained and playful, until act two when she is defending her decision to break it off with her Jewish fiancé. She unleashed a torrent of passion that had everybody weeping, not just me.
The local paper carried an item on Saturday, saying, in effect, "If you missed this play, you missed some of the best local theater this season, amateur or professional." I agree.
