It’s 1929 in Berlin, a city that is transitioning from the epicenter of underground, avant-garde culture to the beginnings of Hitler’s totalitarian regime and the rise of the Nazi Party. The show explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives, and walks the audience through the story of Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer who is looking for inspiration for his next novel. He finds his way to the Kit Kat Klub – a seedy nightclub overseen by the strange, omniscient, and gender-fluid Master of Ceremonies – where he meets Sally Bowles, a vivacious, moderately-talented cabaret performer and an utterly lost soul. The climate in Berlin shifts from exciting and vital to ominous and violent.
Cabaret is suggested for mature audiences.
