Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the emcee, Sally Bowles, and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd – and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times?
Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen,” and “Maybe This Time.” Leave your troubles outside – life is beautiful at “Cabaret” – John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Joe Masteroff’s Tony-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way.
The 1966 original Broadway production was a big hit, inspiring numerous subsequent productions in London and New York, as well as the 1972 film of the same name starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York, and Joel Grey and earning eight Academy Awards, including Best Director, Best Actress in a Leading Role, and Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
