“Cabaret in Captivity is a call to action to use hope not as a means of passive daydreaming, but a powerful act of resistance. It has been said that, ‘Humor equals truth plus distance.’ Perhaps humor was the most palatable, effective way of sharing the unbelievable creativity, will, and resistance that came from the ‘Chosen’ who ‘had no choice.’ ”
Broadway World, reviewing Untitled Theater Company No. 61's 2016 performance at Pangea in New York City
