Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood
The Emcee of the Kit Kat Club cabaret welcomes you to 1929 Berlin and a cross-section of its night life from the affluent middle classes to the flotsam and jetsam of a doomed city. Cliff Bradshaw, a young impoverished American writer searching Europe for inspiration meets several unsavory characters, including smuggler Ernst Ludwig, Fraulein Schneider, and the young English nightclub singer Sally Bowles, with whom he falls in love. The Nazi party begins its ascent into power, and Cliff asks Sally to accompany him to America, but she refuses; she loves Berlin and her life there. As he departs on a train, the Cabaret personalities surround the compartment – singing, dancing and embarking on the whirlwind that would soon lead to the Third Reich. Musical numbers include The Money Song, Tomorrow Belongs to Me, So What?, Don’t Tell Mama, Two Ladies, Sitting Pretty, and the famous title song.
