Trailer of Cabaret!

The official uploaded another video of the production onto youtube today, check it out looks pretty brilliant!

Her eye-makeup kinda creeps me out in one part, not that that has any importance! But gosh!! The Cabaret scene looks likes she's giving it more than her all!!

Siobhan's Doing a Workshop!

That's right, Siobhan's doing a workshop for musical theatre with low and behold her Maria pal Leanne Dobinson! Oh it's a Maria reunion! Love it!

She'll be doing West End Workshops on Tuesday, October 27th and Wednesday, October 28th at the Performing Arts Center, Esher High School.

"Your session starts with a warm up, then a West End tutor will teach you a famous number from a West End show. There is an opportunity to invite your family to see your ‘star’ performance, followed by a question and answer session."

Sounds pretty exciting to me, if any of you are interested here's the link

A couple other bits for you...

A review from Gay Community News

"At the beginning of the show, Sally gets fired from the Kit Kat Club, which means that she and Emcee never get to sing together, as they did in the movie. This is a big pity, since the powerhouse vocals of Siobhan Dillon are the glue that hold this production together and pairing her with Sleep would have provided her with much-needed comic relief."

"Her three recognisable numbers, 'Mein Herr', 'Maybe This Time' and 'Cabaret' are showstoppers in the best traditional sense of the word, the first coreographed in constant motion on a moving staircase, making good use of the talented, buffed-up chorus. Dillon plays Sally as a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown at all times, a desperate, frenetic thing who never stops moving and wants to be anywhere but where she is. She's heading into a life of obscurity as Clifford's wife and mother of his child, rather than that of a star, which is where her heart defiantly is."

"Sally sings 'Cabaret' just before heading off to have an abortion, effectively putting an end to her affair with Clifford, and Dillon's brilliant delivery veres from a heartbreaking, broken and frightened wail to a bold, sassy statement of empowerment in the face of dark forces. She certainly makes the part her own; Liza doesn't get a look-in with this Sally."

And one from the California Chronicle

"If Siobhan Dillon's Sally Bowles lacks Liza Minelli's sardonic edge, she more than makes up for it with her powerful singing voice, no more so than in Maybe This Time."

More Reviews!

Just a bunch of little bits for you, all positive about the show, the actors, and the sets. Love the bits when they mention Siobhan though, soooo.....

"She sings well and looks suitably fragile, bright and innocent (although naughty on the Kit Kat stage)"

Liverpool Daily

"Andrew Lloyd Webber prodigy Siobhan Dillon plays the English teenager, showing a flirtatious, innocent and delirious nature within Sally."

"Dillon shines as Sally when singing Kander and Ebb’s title song or iconic ‘Mein Herr’, whilst surrounded by her semi-naked cabaret girls and boys, whose choreographed moves by Javier De Frutos are outstanding from number to number."

What's on Stage

My favorite bit, I completely agree with it!

"Dillion oozes sexiness and has a very powerful voice"

"If there is one reason to see this production then it has to be for Siobhan Dillon who is sensational as she belts tunes with real feeling and emotion, a performance that is so mesmorising it draws you in."
