Get Details on the Broadway Balances America Series
Roundabout Theatre Company’s Tony® award-winning production of CABARET, directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, takes audiences into the infamous and seductive Kit Kat Klub during pre-WWII Germany where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd. The Kit Kat Girls and Boys who make up the ensemble of the production not only fulfill their responsibilities as traditional “triple threats” who act, sing, and dance their way through the show, but are actually true “quadruple threats” as they also play musical instruments and make up the CABARET orchestra. Their characters do whatever it takes to survive the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife and the actors and actresses behind these tough-as-nails nightclub performers know what it takes to balance a rigorous schedule to excel in all four disciplines.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
