All Stages Online: Spring 2013 – Role of a Lifetime – Emcee

John Ullyatt – Cabaret written by Christopher Isherwood, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb – Citadel Theatre

I’ve been pretty lucky with roles to choose to answer this quetion, but the first one that came to mind was Cabaret. I was supposed to play the Emcee in Cabaret at McGill, many years before I played it in Edmonton. I was also supposed to share the role with another guy. The production got cancelled, thank god, but when Bob Baker asked me to do it here, I was ready to rumble!
