December has just been too much fun. A and I went to see Cabaret at Studio 54 a couple of weeks ago and I just haven't had time to talk about. Alan Cumming was awesome as the narrator. I cannot imagine a more perfect Sally Bowles than Emma Stone. I can never get enough of the rasp in her voice. I feel the same about Anna Faris's voice as well as Mariah's speaking voice. Last time I saw the show it definitely went over my head. That was back in college before I knew anything about burlesque, had toured Dachau, and had any understanding of adult relationships. I was really impressed with Maybe This Time, particularly since I'd just seen Kristin Chenowith perform it on her PBS special the previous week. Chenowith's voice is obviously incomparable, but Emma Stone completely inhabited her role and blew the audience away on that number. The standing ovation was easily deserved.
