In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, Cliff Bradshaw, an English author working on a novel in pre-WWII Berlin, falls in love with the vivacious American Sally Bowles, a singer at the local Kit Kat Klub. Their dream-like romance is tested by the political upheaval that changes their lives dramatically. Cabaret explores the tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Even after fifty years, this classic Tony Award-winning musical remains painfully prophetic, reminding us through Sally and the Emcee’s lost souls what horrors humans are capable of, lest we ever forget.
