As you plan your entertainment calendar for March, here are a few performances our Arts Insider suggests that you should see this month.
PNC Broadway in Louisville
It’s the city of Berlin, 1930. The setting: the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where performer Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd while urging them to leave their troubles outside. Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. The musical features some of the most memorable songs in theater history, including Cabaret, Willkommen and Maybe This Time. “Truly unmissable! Even if you saw it last time, you are strongly advised — no, URGED — to return.” — USA Today

Bonnie Raitt Dig In Deep tour
The Dig In Deep tour follows the release of Bonnie Raitt’s 20th album of the same name this month and features her longtime touring band. “So much of the album is focused on what I want to do live,” Bonnie says. “I write and pick these songs so we can nail them on stage.” Her powerful chemistry with the band creates a magic that has been described as “exquisite” (Chicago Tribune) and “perfect” (Boston Globe).
