The curtain rises tonight at the August Wilson Theatre, where previews begin for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club.

The cast of Cabaret on Broadway features 22 performers, 12 prologue performers, six Broadway debuts, one Tony Award nominee (Ato Blankson-Wood), and two Tony Award winners (Bebe Neuwirth and Eddie Redmayne).

Cabaret takes up residence at the August Wilson Theatre following Funny Girl, which closed on September 3, 2023. For this production of Cabaret, the creative team has transformed the theatre into the Kit Kat Club with an in-the-round auditorium and sinfully dreamlike spaces. The last revival of Cabaret opened at Studio 54 in 2014.

Meet the cast of Cabaret below!
