Just got the original cast recording of the 1998 revival of Cabaret with Alan Cumming as the emcee and Natasha Richardson as Sally Bowles. Damn. I wish I’d seen it. Amazing stuff.
Cumming’s rendition of “I Don’t Care Much” is particularly powerful. Talented fellow. (Did I mention I just read his saucy novel Tommy’s Tale? Well, I did and he deserves to be spanked. If you can’t handle the first few pages, don’t bother, honey, it ain’t your kind of tale. Sweet dirty boy, he is, and bless him for it).
