Join the Museum at Eldridge Street on Zoom for an installment of Cinema Chats! Cabaret (1972) is an iconic film which won Academy Awards for best directing (Bob Fosse), best actress in a leading role (Liza Minnelli), and best actor in a supporting role (Joel Grey), as well as cinematography and production design. Based in 1931 Berlin, the plot follows Minelli’s character, American cabaret singer Sally Bowles, who meets British academic Brian Roberts (Michael York) who is finishing his university studies. The pair become lovers, but both soon fall for newcomer Maximilian von Heune (Helmut Griem), a wealthy and decadent playboy. This love triangle plays out against the rise of the Nazi party and the collapse of the Weimar Republic.

Join award- winning actor, Steven Skybell, who is currently starring as Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor who falls in love with boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider, in the Broadway revival of Cabaret. Together, Skybell and Cinema Chats moderator Lucy Shahar will lead us in a discussion about the film from an acting perspective.
