1931 Berlin, and the fragile Weimar Republic is being torn apart by radical politics on the right and left. But inside the cabaret, the world is alive with seedy glamour and a kind of freedom never known before -- for now. A young, broke American finds himself entangled by the dreams of the unforgettable Sally Bowles, who initiates him to the pleasures and dangers of the cabaret. One of the great musicals of the last century is brought to passionate, vibrant, imaginative life by Artistic Director Eric Rosen (Venice, A Christmas Story, Winesburg, Ohio). Kansas City native and legend John Kander, who, along with Fred Ebb, created one of the most powerful theatrical scores ever. Recommended for high school and up.
