by Stage Tube - Mar 19, 2015

Today in 1998, the second Broadway revival of Caberat opened at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (then renamed the Kit Kat Klub), where it ran for 2377 performances.

Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub which serves as a constant metaphor for the tenuous and threatening state of late Weimar Germany throughout the show.
