Cabaret is a gritty, sexy and thought-provoking musical about a society on the brink of catastrophic change. Set during the rise of the Nazis in 1930s Germany, this hard-hitting story revolves around the seedy Kit Kat Klub where patrons, captivated by the decadent allure, come to escape the deteriorating outside world. Written by the incomparable team of John Kander (music), Fred Ebb (lyrics) and Joe Masteroff (book), Cabaret is a sumptuous and provocative musical which is more relevant now than ever, exploring the devastating results of authoritarianism, bigotry, and cultural upheaval in times of political change. Musical numbers include well-known classics of the musical stage like “Money,” “Mein Herr,” “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time,” and of course “Cabaret.”
