"There was a cabaret, and there was a master of ceremonies...” Life in 1920s Berlin, like many other parts of the world, was a time of excess and carefree living. Take your seat at the Kit Kat Klub, the perfectly marvelous cabaret.  Cabaret depicts the interlocking stories of a cabaret singer (Sally Bowles), a writer from America (Cliff Bradshaw), and the citizens of Berlin, all caught up in the swirling maelstrom of a changing society. As the Nazi party begins its rise to power in the 1930s, each character’s life is deeply affected and each must decide how to respond to the political events happening around them. Sally and Cliff must each decide if they will abandon themselves to the pleasures of the cabaret, or open their eyes and face the coming storm. Based on Christopher Isherwood’s Goodbye to Berlin, Cabaret is hard-edged, with a starkly real storyline. The images of Berlin and the ways in which it bows to the rise of the Nazi Party are powerful and disturbing, providing lessons for generations of theater-goers.  PLEASE NOTE: This program contains adult content.
