Description

This is not a musical about Nazi Berlin. Instead, Joe Masteroff’s book takes us into the world of the uncertain and chaotic Weimar Republic – a post-World War I, wild and art-filled nightclub scene mixed with the threat of the unknown. When the show first starts in 1929 we see how the morality in Berlin is decaying as rapidly as the democratic system – the Emcee welcomes and introduces us to the Kit Kat Klub, a place where life is trouble-free and “beautiful.” And yet, as the show progresses, we see the decline of this way of life as the Emcee is slowly abandoned and betrayed by all those around him.

In the months that precede the outbreak of World War II, American writer Clifford Bradshaw lands in Berlin and soon finds himself at the notorious Kit Kat Klub. There he falls madly in love with the English ex-patriot entertainer Sally Bowles. Their affair is tested as her reckless lifestyle overwhelms him and as the world around them marches towards chaos. Throughout, the Kit Kat Klub's Emcee taunts and satirizes with dazzling musical numbers in a score that includes "Wilkommen","Money (Makes the World Go Around),"Maybe This Time", and the unforgettable title tune.

Book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb.
