About this show

The decadent world of the 1930s Berlin comes to life in this Tony Award-winning musical masterpiece. Set in Berlin on New Years Eve, 1930, Cabaret is a provocative tale of love placed against the ominous threat of the Nazi rise to power. Based on Christopher Isherwood's novel The Berlin Stories and John Van Druten's play I Am a Camera, Cabaret follows an English nightclub singer, an American writer, a German landlady and a Jewish shopkeeper who find their destinies linked and their futures uncertain on the eve of the Third Reich. Considered one of the defining musicals of the postwar era, Cabaret broke the mold of musicals by presenting the audience with a highly "conceptualized" production. Cabaret won eight 1967 Tony Awards (including Best Musical and Best Score) and ran for 1,165 performances. Lunch and dinner theater packages range from $43.75 to $61.00 depending on the day of the week.
