I bought tickets because I like the show (especially the tunes) and the fact that they were utilizing a live orchestra. The bar was low - but, man, did this performance blow my socks off. Such energy and talent--across the board, but especially...continued

Very good presentation in a very intimate setting. A little warm inside due to the 100+ temp. outside, but not unbearable.

a very good show for a small theater company, the cast was excellent, particularly the Emcee, live band was small but did a great job and the story is timeless. the theater is very small and intimate.

Description

In 1930 Christopher Isherwood, a young British writer, traveled to Berlin. It was city at the forefront of modernization and was rife with turmoil. Cabaret, based on Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin, is an exciting and tragically beautiful musical set against the economic crisis, political unrest, and a wild, hedonistic nightlife of Weimar Berlin. Set against the Nazi rise to power, it focuses on patrons and performers at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. 

The 1966 Broadway production became a hit: 8 Tony Awards (Best Musical, Composer and Lyricist, Director, Choreographer, Scenic Design, Costume Design, Supporting or Featured Actor and Supporting or Featured Actress) The Outer Critics Circle Award for Production, and The New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. It spawned a 1972 film starring Liza Minnelli as well as numerous subsequent productions
