CABARET, takes audiences deep into the seedy nightlife of the Kit Kat Klub in Weimar, Germany on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power. Led by the enigmatic and dazzling Emcee, CABARET is an intoxicating theatrical experience, featuring well-known classics of the musical stage such as “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Maybe This Time,” and of course “Cabaret”. CABARET is a beloved and compelling piece of theatre and the winner of 8 Tony Awards and has characters that are not only complex and dark, but funny and delightful – all in all, deeply human.
