Berlin. 1930. Seeking inspiration for a new novel, young American writer Cliff Bradshaw arrives in a Berlin caught in the gathering storm of Nazism. At the sinfully sordid Kit Kat Klub, he meets and falls in love with irrepressible British chanteuse Sally Bowles, who introduces him to a world of divine decadence and dark prophecy. Under the sexy, cynical gaze of the Klub's Emcee, the two begin an affair, sharing dreams of a future that will never be in a world of uncontrollably racing towards the horrors of World War II. Inspired by Christopher Isherwood's BERLIN STORIES and featuring some of the best known songs in musical theatre, CABARET is an intoxicating cocktail of show tunes, social commentary and political warning. To celebrate the new millennium, leave your troubles outside and "Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!" to the provocative and unforgettable world of CABARET.
