An undeniable classic, this wrenching, spectacular and riveting musical follows the events surrounding an underground night club in Berlin during the dawn of the Third Reich. The show provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse at petulant diva Sally Bowles as she flirts, fights and dreams her way through life as a struggling performer. The grim historical backdrop is reflected through the seedy Kit Kat Klub as its emcee and Sally bombard the audience with delicious musical numbers done in classically bawdy cabaret-style. Intense political pressures mount over the course of the show as tragic and somber realities set in. As memorable and stirring today as it was in its premiere in 1966, with music by the incomparable John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Cabaret is an unmissable show for devotees of the stage.
