A second major musical is coming to Madrid this Autumn. The musical “Cabaret”, directed by Sam Mendes, comes to the Nuevo Teatro Alcalá de Madrid on October 15th. Sam Mendes, of American Beauty fame, along with Chicago director Rob Marshall, have brought the show to Madrid having achieved major success with it on Broadway. The theatre has undergone a dramatic change in order to turn it into the Kit Kat Klub, replete with black tables, red lamps and even a couple of bars, from where the public can be served!! It sounds like it will be the show of the Autumn, possibly beating “We Will Rock You”. However, what will happend when “Cats” arrives in December?!

Tickets: from the theatre box – c/ Jorge Juan, 62 – Metro: Príncipe de Vergara – Tel: 91 426 47 79 or from El Corte Inglés – Tel: 902 26 27 26. Prices range from 15 to 65 Euros (unfortunately the El Corte Inglés web site is in Spanish but you could buy from one of their many stores in Madrid).

The rock musical “We Will Rock You” hits the Madrid stage on October 1st. The show was written by Ben Elton and Queen and has been a huge success in London. Opening night tickets, at the Teatro Calderón (Metro Puerta del Sol), have been sold for weeks now but other nights are still available. If you’re looking for tickets, try buying from the theatre itself; from ServiCaixa or from the store FNAC (which is located in Metro Callao). I have also come across these sites where you can purchase tickets (October 1st): Halcon Viajes and Queenonline.com. If you can speak Spanish, take a look at the article written in El Mundo’s theatre section.
