Cabaret takes audiences deep into the seedy nightlife of the Kit Kat Klub on the eve of Hitler's rise to power in Weimar, Germany. Cliff Bradshaw, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately smitten by the beguiling, self-destructive cabaret singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Musical numbers include well-known classics of the musical stage like "Money," "Tomorrow Belongs To Me," "Willkommen," "Maybe This Time," and of course "Cabaret."
