Since its Broadway premiere in 1966, the musical Cabaret has become a modern classic in a league of its own. Get ready for a dark but highly entertaining story of impossible love in an impossible time – filled with music and song.

Berlin, 1931. Two years before the Nazis seize power, the young American writer Cliff meets nightclub chanteuse Sally in the cabaret known as The Kit Kat Club. At the cabaret, wild abandon, decadence and high culture provide a sharp contrast to the encroaching paranoia that characterises the world outside.

With The Kit Kat Club as backdrop, Cabaret reveals both love affairs and a series of tragic destinies caused by the aggravated political climate. Cliff must therefore watch as the landlady of his boarding house, Fraulein Schneider, cancels her wedding with her elderly Jewish suitor, Herr Schultz.

The musical is based on John Van Druten’s 1951 play I Am a Camera, which was inspired by Christopher Isherwood’s famous 1939 novel, Goodbye to Berlin. Isherwood was gay and lived in Berlin at the start of the 1930s, where he drew inspiration from the local atmosphere and people he encountered.
