Life is a cabaret.
Set in a nightclub in Berlin, 1930, Kander and Ebb's musical masterpiece, Cabaret, captures the last vestiges of a decadent world on the brink of being consumed by darkness. Within the walls of the Kit Kat Klub, the devilish Master of Ceremonies invites his audience to leave their troubles outside and give in to the temptations of music, dance and debauchery, while outside, a certain political party is gradually rising to power, threatening the very balance of world order.
Told through the eyes of a young, bisexual, American novelist, Cabaret focuses on his relationship with Sally Bowles, who comes to represent all he loves most about Berlin, as well as all that most disturbs him about the city.
Cabaret is a dark and compelling journey into the past and a timely exploration of a carefree society on the brink of destruction - a circumstance that is most often overlooked, until it is too late.
