Show Summary:

Set in 1931 Berlin, as the Nazis are rising to power, is set in the cabaret underworld on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power. This unforgettable musical tells the story of Cliff Bradshaw, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, and his relationship with cabaret singer Sally Bowles. Their relationship blossoms amid the back room culture of the cabaret and the tumultuous atmosphere of pre-Nazi Germany. Cabaret is a raw and powerful jazz musical that explores the dark life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. The show has had numerous Broadway and London revivals and is the winner of multiple Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score for Kander and Ebb’s compelling musical numbers which include, “Willkommen”, “Money”, “Tomorrow Belongs To Me”, “Maybe This Time”, and “Cabaret”. Come to the Cabaret, your table’s waiting!
