Jan 19 – Feb. 11, 2018 –  La Mirada Theatre for the Performing ArtsMcCoy Rigby Entertainment present CABARET – the third show of its 2017-2018 season (and the 40th anniversary of the iconic theatre).

kelly lester as fraulein schneider cabaretLester‘s take on Fräulein Schneider was beautifully done, capped off by some of the show’s most memorable musical solo work…” – BROADWAY WORLD

“Outstanding is a word that immediately comes to mind when describing Kelly Lester as “Fraulein Schneider”…. Gifted with a lavish voice and song-styling capability … Lester also does a superlative – if heart wrenching job – delivering “What Would You Do”.”– BUCK-ING TRENDS

Lester sings and acts the hell out of “So What?” and “What Would You Do?” – STAGE SCENE LA

Lester’s superbly drawn character traces a clear arc… Her anguish reaches its apex in Lester’s haunting rendition of “What Would You Do?” – ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

“The true standouts of the piece … are Kelly Lester and Jack Laufer as the elderly, doomed romantic couple. Most particularly Lester’s Schneider in her wrenching “What Would You Do?”, sacrificing love for safety in a time that will allow her neither, and Laufer’s genuineness, which makes their entire affair just that much more elementally sad.” – THE DAILY NEWS

Enormous and grateful thanks to our producers Tom McCoy and Cathy Rigby, director Larry Carpenter, musical director David O, choreographer Dana Solimando, and the marvelous Jack Laufer, who plays the object of my affection, Herr Schultz, with such tenderness, it breaks my heart nightly.
