Before it was a musical, it was a play titled I Am a Camera. Before it was a play, it was a 1939 novel by Christopher Isherwood set at the dawn of the Third Reich as Weimar Germany was giving way to the Nazis. Oh, and long before Isherwood decided to set his story of romance, modernism, and the end of the world in a bawdy Berlin nightclub, cabaret was a French import to Germany featuring theatrical singing and dancing of the adult variety. Wolfbane Productions mounts its production of the 1966 musical Cabaret this evening at the Wolf Den (197 Old Courthouse Rd.) in Appomattox. Doors are at 7 for 8 p.m. performances tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday, and there’s a 6 p.m. matinee on Sunday. Tickets run from $20-$35. Click here for tickets and info, or call (434) 579-3542.
