Based on the play I Am a Camera by John Van Druten

Based on stories by Christopher Isherwood

The infamous Kit Kat Klub has undergone a new makeover. Grab a VIP seat and become a part of the action. Ö A female master of ceremonies hosts a decadent and sensual interpretation of CABARET.

Based on the original concept and script, this staged version brings forth the turmoil of love, trust, denial and desire embodied in Sally Bowles as well as the young and restless curiosity of a defiant American named Cliff.

From the producer that brought you the smash hit, Elevator, and the director of Into the Woods and Pippin.

Set against the backdrop of pre-World War II, the show takes place inside a provocative, yet forbidden Kit Kat Klub, where the relationship between cabaret performer Sally Bowles and the handsome American Cliff Bradshaw flourishes only to be confronted by social taboos and the imminent rise of the Nazi Party.

Overseeing all of the action in CABARET is the Master of Ceremonies (MC) of the Kit Kat Klub, who serves as a cultural metaphor and the upbeat catalyst to the ever-changing climate of the show.

Reflecting the moods and guiding the minds of the characters on stage, the MC takes pleasure in reminding the audience how easily society falls prey to the electrifying chaos that surrounds them. It is best to leave all inhibitions outside.

Sarah & The Safe Word Drop New Cinematic Single 'Red Hot & Holy'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 21, 2018

An ambitious combination of gothic pop and vaudeville-esque rock, Sarah & The Safe Word explore themes of safety, comfort, and sensuality on their new single 'Red Hot & Holy,' out TODAY. The 7- piece breaks the rock mold by expanding on the genre with a wide range of instruments, but they also aren't shy in their lyrical content. Lead vocalist Sarah describes the song as being 'about struggling to find a space for yourself in a culture that so frequently denies young adults the opportunity to grow and blossom - whether it's in their identity, sexuality, spirituality, or aesthetic. This is me saying, 'Let me breathe, let me love, let me be touched how I want to be.' Sarah & The Safe Word very much seem to be creating a brand centralizing around both the inclusion and well-being of their listeners, which is perhaps the most intriguing part about the group. While both cinematic and melodic, 'Red Hot & Holy' is the perfect example of their vivid, theatrical, sensual smoothie of sounds as they gear up for their upcoming EP release this fall. About the release of 'Red Hot & Holy,' the band states: (more...)
