Date/Time: Mar 29 @ 6:00pm
A vivacious showgirl and a gin-soaked playboy meet with a tango at a raucous jazz club. As the world around them crumbles in pre-war Berlin, their love roars amongst the chaos. With a modern song list, and Spotlight’s signature satire, this will be an original mashup of the classic novel The Great Gatsby and the musical Cabaret. Paired with a beautiful four course meal from Spotlight’s kitchen, inspired by this unparalleled time period of jazz, prosperity and champagne parties, Gatsby’s Cabaret will be an unforgettable evening of comedy, incredible music and delectable food.
