The ground-breaking musical CABARET opened on Broadway in 1966, winning 8 Tony awards. In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. The musical explores the dark and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of a boarding house, begins a romance with Herr Schultz, who happens to be Jewish. CABARET is a powerful telling of a world in turmoil and the humanity caught in the midst of it. Intended for Mature Audiences.
CABARET, directed by Bill Gabelhausen, runs October 3-5 at 7:30 PM and October 6 at 2 PM in the Swanson Center Mainstage Theater.
