Cabaret Verboten

The Huntington Theater, Boston Director Martin Platt

A famous anti-war song protesting Hitler’s invasions, The Drummer Girl is costumed as if in a shooting gallery. This was a fast change costume, so make up was painted onto a clear face mask to create mechanical effect. When Drummer is shot at end of song, the red heart in her costume lights up in the black out.


This pair of costumes accompanied a tango- each costume is half man, half woman.
