Cabaret - Wilkommen

Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome to [community profile] musicals_monday! Now that I've finally gotten myself a little more ordered (although not as ordered as I'd have hoped, so things might be a little clich├ęd for the first few weeks), I thought it was time to start posting. And what better way to welcome people to the community than with "Willkommen" from Cabaret?

Performed by: Joel Grey

(I can't find any footage of Michael C. Hall performing as the Master of Ceremonies in a replacement cast for the 1998 revival. This makes me sad.)
