Cabaret takes place from 1929-1930, a time in Berlin at the beginnings of the rise of the Nazi Party. Into this world enters Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer. On his first night in Berlin, Cliff wanders into the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy nightclub overseen by the strange Master of Ceremonies, “the Emcee.” Here, Cliff meets Sally Bowles, a vivacious, talented cabaret performer, and an utterly lost soul. Sally and Cliff begin a relationship, which blossoms unexpectedly into a dream-like romance. As time passes, however, the situation in Berlin changes from exciting and vital to ominous and violent. With a score featuring songs that have become classics of the American Musical Theatre, Cabaret is a fierce, meaty musical that pushes the boundaries of the form and literally holds”the mirror up to nature.”
