Celebrating its 50th anniversary, this masterpiece of American musical theater has never been more pertinent. Set in a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Classic musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “The Money Song” and “Maybe This Time.”
Recommended for Age 14+: This historically important and influential musical includes innuendo and mature themes.
