Nearly 60 years after its 1960 premiere, Cabaret remains timeless. Now, see the musical as you never have before as the August Wilson Theatre completely transforms into the Kit Kat Club in 1930 Berlin. There, writer Cliff Bradshaw witnesses how the hedonistic lives of its Emcee, headliner Sally Bowles, and more crash headfirst into the rise of Nazism.
Director Rebecca Frecknall's production, which won seven Olivier Awards in London including Best Musical Revival, retains all of Kander and Ebb's most iconic songs, like "Mein Herr," "Maybe This Time," and the riveting title track. Life is a cabaret, old chum, and it's time to experience it — set an alert for tickets to Cabaret on Broadway now.

Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966 and nearly swept that year's Tony Awards, taking home eight awards, including Best Musical, out of 11 nominations. Kander and Ebb won Best Composer And Lyricist (now Best Original Score), and theatre icon Harold Prince won for direction. Joel Grey, who won for playing the Emcee, went on to win an Oscar for reprising the role in the 1972 film opposite Liza Minnelli.
Since the premiere of Cabaret in New York, the musical returned to Broadway three more times: in 1987, 1998, and 2014. The 2024 revival premiered in London in 2021, where it still runs today. Among its seven Oliviers were Best Direction for Frecknall and Best Actor and Actress for Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley, who starred as the Emcee and Sally, respectively.
