Classic movies are returning to the Senator this weekend, part of an effort to derail the scheduled April 20 foreclosure auction of the 70-year-old North Baltimore landmark. Bob Fosse's 1972 Cabaret, with Liza Minnelli in her Oscar-winning role, and Christopher Lee in 1958's Horror of Dracula kick off what outgoing owner Tom Kiefaber plans as a series of classic-film screenings, with proceeds used to defray operating costs and work toward bringing current the theater's mortgage. Cabaret, which won eight Oscars (and probably would have won nine, had a little film called The Godfather not won Best Picture)

"If you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere." "Life is a cabaret." When you hear these phrases, the music sounds in your head. That's one indication of how well songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb integrate music and lyrics. And, when they're writing for Broadway, as they have in such shows as "Chicago," "Cabaret" and "Kiss of the Spider Woman," they weave their songs so neatly into the fabric of the shows, they often seem inseparable. Nine years ago, however, Scott Ellis, Susan Stroman and David Thompson discovered new and witty contexts for Kander and Ebb's greatest hits, as well as some of their lesser-known gems.

Who knew school could be so much fun? At "Cabaret for Kids," formally clad guests toured the Children's Guild Baltimore school, finding new adventures around every corner. In one hallway, an a capella group from Johns Hopkins University, the All Nighters, serenaded. Around the corner, a tarot card reader awaited. Buffets lined some corridors, while a magician roamed others. And this was only the warm-up. The big show was yet to come: a cabaret performance by guild faculty members and supporters.

Marilyn Monroe on a subway grate, skirt billowing in its updraft. Judy Garland, Diana Ross and Frank Sinatra boogieing in neon go-go cages. A psychedelic scene from a '60s-themed flick? Naw. Just Everyman Theatre's "10th Anniversary Salute." Impersonators only fleshed out the transformation of the Charles Street theater to an old Hollywood-style cabaret -- say, the kind where Sinatra's rat pack hung out. This time, this pack included some 300 theater supporters, such as Martha Weiman, event chair; Donald Hicken, Mary Ann Masur and Steve Yeager, event committee members; Gordon Becker, Everyman board chair; Jeannie Howe, board president; Kathy Abbott, Gina B.

Beware of flying crockery. I'm pleased to report that no members of the audience were accidentally beheaded during a recent performance of Le Cabaret de Carmen. That would be carrying the quest for authenticity a bit too far. But at times, it was a close call. Most singers portraying the Gypsy siren Carmen use castanets when they dance. Sophie-Louise Roland uses shards of a plate that she obligingly shatters on stage. At one point, Roland flung her arm so vehemently over her head that a heavy metal bracelet flew off her arm and ricocheted against the wall.
