Berlin at the close of the 1920s. Inside the Kit Kat Klub the Emcee invites you to ‘leave your troubles outside … life is beautiful, the girls are beautiful, even the orchestra is beautiful!’
Life is a cabaret for the performer Sally Bowles who meets a young, American writer Cliff Bradshaw. Elsewhere life isn’t so easy as the Nazi Party grows in strength and an elderly love, trying to bear fruit, is struggling to survive changing times in Weimar Germany. Classic songs abound in this pioneering, Tony award-winning musical and Oscar winning film.
