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, 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 in the intimate setting of the Onyx Theatre with beloved musical numbers, including "Don't Tell Mama," "Willkommen" and "Cabaret."

Reviews & Ratings
Morphotic is the manifestation of Franz Kafka’s neurosis and self-loathing. It simultaneously explores his fictional work and wrestles with his real-life demons.
Cynthia Vodovoz stars as the writer and is joined by Insurgents Jason Morrison, Brandon McClenahan. F. Ed Knutson and guest artists Natascha Negro, Thom Chrastka, Derrick Stroman, Ariana Miner, and Sarah Spraker. The show features original soundscapes and projections, and choreography by Insurgent Jenna Wurtzberger. The production is created and directed by Insurgo Associate Artistic Director Shawn Hackler, written by Hackler and using works from Kafka.
“It’s ultimately that classic story of an artist,” says John Beane, Artistic Director of the Insurgo Theater Movement. “Hackler has crafted a feast that is visually and stylistically startling – but what we get to are the things that every man faces. What is an artist? What is a man? How much do we sacrifice for the ones we love before we diminish what they loved in the first place? What is our responsibility to the world?”
