SOFIENSÄLE Vienna in the KIT KAT CLUB.
Uwe Kroeger as Emcee.
December 1998 till January 1999.
Musicals / February 1999
..... The great advantage is the new Emcee Uwe Kroeger. He makes clear why he was engaged: he is the starling of the show and he doesn’t allow a seconds doubt about this. The one in the first version of Karl Markovics (see "musicals" book number 62, page 28) high-styled stiffness is foreign to him. His Emcee is at the beginning of the show shrill, eccentric and hyperactive, and it doesn't take from it either that the make-up and the movements reminds one strongly of Jim Carey‘s "the mask". Exactly at the right moment, he lets his personality tip over. A tired, rolled over and broken man is what the shrill jester becomes.
This works, and on the only occasion during this evening, really makes one concerned and doesn’t take from the schoolmasterish teaching method of this production from former times, it gives her even a certain irony: the only figure which really seems human is the real artistic figure of the show.
It’s a pity, that this is due to the acting
presence of Uwe Kroeger and not the director.

Sofiensäle: "Emcee" Uwe Kroeger
Starling in the Kit Kat Club
The disreputable Kit Kat Club is in season
again! The next round of the "cabaret" production was applauded in to the
Sofiensälen with a great welcome. A new carthorse leads the production:
Musicalstar Uwe Kroeger as Emcee! .....
Täglich Alles / 1998-12-12
..... Here he is again, our Uwe Kroeger!
Not as long-haired fair-haired "Elisabeth" Death’s angel, but rather, as
equally dangerously seductive, but as hermaphroditic Emcee in "Cabaret".
