Welcome-come enter the sordid, yet enticing Kit Kat Club, presided over by a mysteriously raunchy master of ceremonies and the seductive Kit Kat Girls. Set in the midst of decadent pre-WWII Berlin, this 1998 version of the musical, revolves around the vibrant cabaret performer, Sally Bowles and her relationship with the closeted gay writer, Cliff Bradshaw. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of the characters begin to change dramatically. Cabaret became a landmark at its Broadway opening in 1967, winning eight Tony Awards and in 1972 was turned into an Academy Award winning movie. In 1998, a Broadway revival production of Cabaret combined elements of both the play and film, which went on to win 4 more Tony Awards.

Tickets are available to purchase online 3 weeks before opening night.
