Cabaret

There are 10 comments on the EDGE story from Feb 5, 2013, titled Cabaret. In it, EDGE reports that:

In an unexpected upset, Bob Fosse's expertly crafted, musical film "Cabaret" wrested a slew of major Oscars from its chief rival, "The Godfather." Based on stories by Christopher Isherwood, a play of John Van Druten, and the 1966 Kander & Ebb Broadway smash, the groundbreaking film was termed the first "adult" musical.

It still remains the most adult musical.. Nothing more mature, sophisticated or of higher artistic value has been done since in the Musical field.. It can only be compared to Weill's "Three penny opera" and "Mahagonny" which, of course, preceded it.. and the film is a jewel which deserves all possible praise..

And I don't think "The Godfather" stands the test of time.("Goodfellas" does.)

Mine also! O course, that's as far from a Broadway musical as it can get.. A work of art nevertheless..

You really should see both.. "The Red Shoes" is on you-tube and is worth anybody's time.. unless you're not interested in ballet, that is.. Even so the story itself is very interesting.. The same team made "Black Narcissus", another great one..
