Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!
Put down the knitting, the book and the broom, and come to the Cabaret! After wowing on Broadway, The Roundabout Theatre Company's Tony-winning dazzler is on a huge North American tour, bringing the scandalous surround of the gaudy Kit Kat Klub of pre-war Berlin to your door!
Life is a cabaret, Old Chum
First appearing on The Great White Way in 1966, Cabaret is based on writer Christopher Isherwood's time in the bohemian clubs of Berlin in the early 1930s. With decadence and sexual exploration being the first orders of business, Caberet tells the story of one Sally Bowles, a daring femme fatale in training, and her new room-mate, the shy runaway Cliff. On a mission to experience every sight and sound, Cliff follows Sally to the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy underground cabaret club presided over by the all-knowing Emcee.
But whilst the night goes on forever inside, the music is not loud enough to cover the ever growing voice of fascism, as Nazi ideals seep into the city, and eventually the club itself.
With music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, book by Joe Masteroff and Direction from Sam Mendes, this wildly entertaining musical thrills easily, as the narrative takes on ever more terrifying subject matter. Cabaret is an absolute must see!
