Friday night, after two-and-a-half years of being shut down due to COVID, the East Hawai‘i Cultural Center in Hilo opened its renovated and restored theatre with the heartwarming, timely and often hilarious Grammy, Oscar and eight-time Tony Award winning musical, “Cabaret.”

Cabaret, which is often called one of the greatest musicals of all time is being produced by the Hilo Education Arts Repertory Theatre (HEART) which is the award-winning team behind Hilo’s sold out, critically acclaimed productions of “Avenue Q,” “Beauty and The Beast” and “Home for the HiloDays!”

“Cabaret,” a timeless and classic love story follows two couples and takes audiences deep into the dark and decadent nightlife of the Kit Kat Klub on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power in Berlin, Germany.

Performances run Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. through Aug. 14th at the East Hawai‘i Cultural Center. Opening weekend this weekend is sold out but there are seats available for the remaining two weekends. The show is currently looking to extend due to high ticket demand but can not guarantee that yet.
