As the 1920s draw to a close and Germany yields to the Third Reich, a garish Master of Ceremonies coyly urges audiences of the Kit Kat Klub to “forget all their troubles.” However, behind the Emcee’s bawdy song and dance of the Cabaret, the dark and tumultuous realities of life in Nazi-controlled Berlin, begin to surface. Hailed by critics when it arrived on Broadway in 1966, Cabaret tells the story of Cliff, a young American writer, who falls for a cabaret singer, Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Revered for its bawdy yet intelligent wit and raucous nature, Cabaret is a dazzling story of following your heart even in the midst of chaos and decay.
Cabaret contains mature language, partial nudity, adult themes and imagery that some audiences may find disturbing or offensive. Several theatrical effects are used in this production, including fog, haze and cigarette smoke. Please contact the Box Office for more details.
Concessions will be available for cash purchase beginning one hour prior to this performance.
