Life is a Cabaret old chum…

Earlier in the week we reported on the news that Abu Dhabi was preparing to raise the curtains on a brand new stage for the performing arts. Theatre By Erth is a redeveloped space at capital leisure megaproject, Erth.

Located along the Khor Al Maqta waterfront and formally known as the Armed Forces Officers Club & Hotel, Erth is currently coming towards the end of a comprehensive multi-million dirham refurbishment.

The theatre will be one of Erth’s crowning entertainment facilities with a 631-seat capacity. The concept was created in partnership with Outside The Box Events LLC, the team that own and operate the ‘Theatres By’ concept – including the famous floating ‘Theatre by QE2.’

But what sort of shows will be launching with it, when the starlet debuts this October?
