"...Lucille Petty...plays Sally to within an inch of her life in Winding Road Theater Ensemble's Cabaret. You'll likely love this sizzling 'Cabaret' long before Petty sends a few chills up your spine with the title song...the miracle of this mounting is the ensemble. Under the direction of Christopher Johnson and Evan Werner, the cast is exceptional from top to bottom...It would be a crime to oversell this 'Cabaret.' But you try curbing your enthusiasm when confronted with what Winding Road has done. Besides, running the risk of raising expectations to unnatural levels is a misdemeanor compared to the more serious crime for theater lovers: missing what will be the hottest ticket this side of the top-ranked UA men's basketball team. So put down your Twitter, Facebook and phone, old chums, because there's something special happening right now in the real world. Right this way, your table's waiting."

--M. Scot Skinner, reviewing CABARET for Tucson Weekly


"Winding Road’s 'Cabaret' is insightful. And disturbing. And has a terrific ensemble cast...Nick Trice‘s turn as the American, Clifford, was strong, and Dani Dryer‘s gender-bending Ernst was riveting and a brilliant piece of casting on the directors’ part...And it must be said: Mickey Nugent‘s choreography is organic, fun, and a visual is a production that is dedicated to this musical theater piece, which carries a profundity along with its tunes. Winding Road tackles it with heart, head and commitment."

--Kathleen Allen, reviewing CABARET for The Arizona Daily Star


"You absolutely must see Christopher Johnson’s spot-on gender-mangling interpretation of the Nazi musical 'Cabaret.' Toss out the sparkly enthusiasm of Liza Minnelli and the smirky Emcee Joel Grey that everyone is used to...As the sadly resigned ringmaster, Johnson with shaved head and white face paint is as great as we all knew he would be...But it is Lucille Petty who steals the show as Sally Bowles, her creature a harrowing vision of the extremes some people can reach when they are so determined to avoid reality...Co-directors Johnson and Evan Werner are convinced you can’t have too much decadence. Choreographer Mickey Nugent shares their vision, as do the seven Kit Kat Klub dancers who perform with the weary inevitability of lost souls...Though Sally and the Emcee are the point persons in this play, the production is a complete ensemble effort. Everyone is doing their part, creating unforgettable theater that people will be talking about long after the curtain drops."
