Most Memorable Performance: David Mann in freeFall’s Cabaret

Most Memorable Performance

Dominating freeFall’s terrific Cabaret was local actor Mann as the Weimar-era Kit Kat Klub’s Emcee. With his shaved head and zoned-out eyes, he looked just like a character in a George Grosz drawing: depraved, depressed, jaded and doomed. He sang with an irony that Brecht would have envied, and managed with a portentous glance to sum up the anguish of a Germany about to enter a 12-year nightmare. Willkommen, Mr. Mann.
