Cabaret: 40th Anniversary Edition
($27.98 Blu-ray, $14.99 DVD; Warner Brothers)
Warner Brothers offers a warm Blu-ray wilkommen to director Bob Fosse’s film adaptation of the Kander and Ebb musical about Berlin nightclub denizens during the rise of the Nazi regime. Liza Minelli rightfully won an Oscar as singer Sally Bowles, Joel Grey as the leering, very queer Kit Kat Klub emcee, and Michael York as author Christopher Isherwood’s alter-ego. Still gleefully subversive and poignant four decades later, the gloriously remastered Blu-ray comes packaged with a 40-page photo book, a new “Cabaret: The Musical That Changed Musicals” featurette, cast reminiscences, commentary by film historian Stephen Tropiano, and more.
