Step out of the modern world and back in time to the divinely decadent Kit Kat Klub of prewar Germany, where the music is tantalizing and the drinks are plentiful. Within the club, lives intertwine as a cabaret singer, an expat American writer and other misfits and outcasts of Weimar-era Berlin come together to escape a changing society where their kind is less than welcome and dark forces threaten to end the party forever. Led by the enigmatic Emcee and charismatic singer Sally Bowles, the colorful characters of this Kander and Ebb masterpiece are eager to entertain you with beloved musical numbers, including "Don't Tell Mama," "Willkommen" and "Cabaret."

“Gut-wrenching performances by an extraordinary cast. Brilliant director Michael Brainard balances the heavy emotional tug of war between the two protagonists.” -Tolucan Times
Taking Sides, by Ronald Harwood, is a powerful examination of the denazification trial of Wilhelm Furtwangler, conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. While no nonsense U.S. Army Major Steve Arnold investigates, Furtwangler fights for his freedom as Arnold dragnets his search for a high profile celebrity guilty of supporting Hitler.
Directed by Michael Brainard
