Description

Book by Joe Masteroff
Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Directed by Diane Doyle

The scene is a nightclub in Berlin, as the 1920’s are drawing to a close. The Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the Cabaret. His songs provide wry commentary throughout the show. On the train to Berlin we find Cliff, a young American writer seeking “raw material” for a new book. On his trip he forms an acquaintance with a fellow-traveller: Ernst Ludwig, a crook who successfully talks Cliff into smuggling a small parcel. In requital of this favour Ludwig promises to invite Bradshaw to an illustrious club, the Kit-Kat-Club. Ludwig keeps his promise and the Kit-Kat-Club lives up to its reputation. Bradshaw soon finds himself in love with a beautiful singer, Sally Bowles. She returns his feelings, but in the end their love costs them dearly.
