Cabaret

The year is 1929. The place, Berlin’s bawdy nightspot, the Kit Kat Klub. Outside the club, Germany succumbs
to the power of the emerging Third Reich. Inside the club, the Emcee intoxicates audiences with promises that troubles are forgotten at the Cabaret. Caught up in this world-at-odds is a host of memorable characters: the naïve writer, Cliff; the seductive singer, Sally Bowles; the boarding house head mistress, Fraulein Schneider; and the Jewish fruit-seller, Herr Schultz. This 1998 Revival version, winner of 4 Tony Awards, provides a scorching satiric indictment of frivolous complacency in the face of impending doom.
