Description

Set in 1920’s to 1930’s Berlin, when avant-garde Germany is shifting to reflect Hitler’s totalitarian regime.

Clifford Bradshaw, an aspiring American writer finds himself wandering into a Berlin nightclub, Kit Kat Club, and meets a cabaret performer, Sally Bowles. Their relationship develops into a romance and is complicated by stirrings of Nazi conspirators. Cliff decides to leave Nazi Germany and encourages Sally to come with him to America but she is unwilling to leave her Berlin lifestyle.

Cabaret is an unflinching political musical with songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb. Adapted for theatre by Joe Masteroff from the Christopher Issherwood’s The Berlin Stories.
