Generally speaking, there have essentially been three visions of Cabaret. First was Hal Prince's colorful, winking production featuring the inimitable Joel Gray's MC. Then, Fosse made his movie - a great movie - sleazier and sultrier. And then there's my least favorite: Sam Mendes's colorless, heroine chic version. My fav by far is Prince's original. But all three are are artfully made with strong vision and immense craft.

That said, I'll take a holiday with Mary every time.

One of my favorites vs. one of my least. I will happily be on the losing side of this battle.
