In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the ‘Cabaret’.

With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. With a score featuring songs that have become musical theatre classics, Cabaret is a fierce musical that pushes the boundaries of the form.
