“Cabaret” is a classic musical that takes place in Berlin, Germany, during the post-World War I economic depression. The show follows characters’ lives as Germany transitions from an underground, avant-garde cultural epicenter to the beginnings of Hitler’s totalitarian regime and the rise of the Nazi Party.
The main character Clifford Bradshaw, played by local actor Sage Brown, is a struggling American writer looking for inspiration for his next novel. While in Berlin, Bradshaw meets cabaret performer Sally Bowles and sparks a budding romance in the midst of political and economic gloom.
As the plot continues, the situation in Berlin changes from exciting and vital to ominous and violent. With a dose of provocation and a score featuring songs that have become classics of the American Musical Theatre, “Cabaret” is a thrilling musical that pushes the boundaries of the form and literally holds “the mirror up to nature.”
“Cabaret” is a 1966 musical with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, based on John Van Druten’s1951 play “I Am a Camera,” which was adapted from the 1939 short novel “Goodbye to Berlin” by Christopher Isherwood.
The musical is Rated R due to adult content, themes and language. This show is not recommended for young children.
