Summary/Abstract: A review of the Warsaw Cabaret production at the Nowy Theatre in Warsaw (prem: 3.07.2013). The author focuses on the perverse nature of this play. Warlikowski draws attention to the complicated relationship between contemporary Warsaw and Berlin at a time when fascism was growing in strength and Post-9/11 New York. Majchrowski, with extraordinary erudition and scholarly conviction, examines element after element of an extensive mosaic of allusions to music and pop culture. Although she takes pleasure in delving into this intertextual game and really appreciates the acting, she regards the five-hour-long production’s profligate use of theatrical energy and resources as excessive and tiresome.
