"In here life is beautiful!"

Cabaret tells the story of a singer in a burlesque club, contrasting with the lives of ordinary people striving to make sense of the changes happening in Berlin in the 1930's.The show brings to life the dark, sexually charged decadence of the time and place, beckoning the audience into the Kit Kat Klub on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power in Germany.
Defiant and melancholy, brazen and gleeful, Cabaret sizzles and provokes.
