Rob Morrison's next "Musical Theatre Melodies" broadcast on Tuesday, 22nd November at 9 p.m. will feature a 50th Anniversary tribute to John Kander and Fred Ebb's Cabaret, (based on the play I Am a Camera by John Van Druten and the Berlin stories by Christopher Isherwood), from the 1966 original Broadway cast recording starring starring Jill Haworth, Joel Grey, Jack Gilford, Bert Convy and Lotte Lenya; plus an additional song from the 1968 London cast recording.

This will be preceded by an introduction to the musical (via Skype) from New York-based theatre critic and Internet columnist - Peter Filichia.

The remainder of the broadcast will feature demo recordings of songs "cut" from the stage score of Cabaret performed by John Kander and Fred Ebb, plus additional songs written for the 1972 Academy Award-winning film version performed by Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey.
