About this show

CABARET is the tale of an American writer who comes to Berlin at the dawn of the Hitler era. He falls in love with the denizens of the decadent Kit Kat Klub, and takes as his roommate the club's former star attraction, Sally Bowles played by Joely Fisher. As he struggles to write a novel, he witnesses the blindness and self-deception of a group of people who allow Nazism to gradually take control while they are emotionally and spiritually "fast asleep." A spectral cabaret emcee comments on the story in a series of increasingly pointed nightclub songs. The winner of four 1998 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, CABARET features a sizzling score by Kander and Ebb with the well-known songs "Money," "Tomorrow Belongs to Me," "Willkommen" and the title song. -vn
