“Leave your troubles outside!” says the emcee at the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where a raucous ensemble takes the stage nightly. “So life is disappointing? Forget it! We have no troubles here. Here – life is beautiful. The girls are beautiful! Even the orchestra is beautiful!”

As life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times? Defiant and melancholy, brazen and gleeful – CABARET sizzles and provokes with some of the most memorable songs in theatre history including Cabaret, Willkommen, and Maybe This Time. Winner of 12 Tony Awards and 8 Academy Awards, this musical from the creators of Chicago and Kiss of the Spider Woman is about following your heart while the world loses its way.
