CABARET — Producers of a long-running Broadway show will often request to explore new advertising campaigns. In 2003, Roundabout Theatre’s production of the John Kander-Fred Ebb-Joe Masteroff musical, Cabaret, was already a sold-out hit heading into its 5th year.
The ad agency asked several designers to explore some concepts to refresh the image of the marketing strategy. My entry involved a drawing of the Sally Bowles character roughly sketched on a crumpled cocktail napkin from the Kit Kat Klub, where most of the show’s action is set. Although, ultimately, the decision was made to keep the already-successful advertising graphics unchanged, I thought this idea was an arresting design interpretation that would work effectively in newspaper ads and on billboards.
