Aaron Krause, writing for MiamiArtZine, describes Area Stage's Cabaret as a "stunning, vivid and arresting production" and Rebecca Ashton’s choreography as "vibrant, acrobatic and eclectic."
"[John] Rodaz plunges us further into the depths of this world," Krause writes. "The wide, expansive, multi-level set plays a big role in communicating Rodaz’ directorial approach."
About Giorgio Volpe, who plays the Emcee, Krause states, "ASC production’s Giorgio Volpe doesn’t try to mimic either performer [Joel Grey and Alan Cumming].... There’s a forcefulness and swagger to [Volpe's] Emcee, without either trait feeling forced. Also, Volpe conveys an unapologetic naughtiness, flamboyance, playfulness and an ability to comfortably and humorously interact with the audience. Volpe is also versatile. He can be upbeat and shameless. At other times, the actor is deftly subdued, yet expressive."
