Cabaret is one of the most successful, popular and influential musicals ever written. You can call it's Kander and Ebb's masterpiece or a defining triumph for Hal Prince or Bob Fosse and in any case, you'll be right on the money.

The good news is they are all available for streaming on various platforms and so I can throw out all these CDs without having to do any uploading.
