Outstanding graphics and images used in print and television campaigns are essential to effective promotion of Broadway productions. This week From The Archives takes a look at promotional materials from one of Roundabout’s most memorable productions: Cabaret.
Two distinct marketing campaigns were created for Cabaret: the iconic image of the Master of Ceremonies peeking through the window of an antique door and images of lead cast members in costume striking sexy “heroin chic” poses.
