“Welcome” to the Cabaret sings the Emcee of the Kit Kat Club through painted lips, as the people of Berlin 1929 join him.
This is the infamous story of Sally Bowles, as most people will remember played in the film version by Liza Minelli. Adapted from themes explored in the book ‘I am a Camera’ the story follows the decadance of 30s Berlin during the nervous times at the start of the rise of the Nazi party. A time when choises had to be made as to whether to carry on in glorious oblivious indulgence, or wake up to the changes happening in the world.
Musical numbers include Meeskite and Why Should I Wake Up?, The Money Song, Wilkommen, Perfectly Marvelous, Sitting Pretty, Tomorrow Belongs to Me, Cabaret, Don’t Tell Mama, It Couldn’t Please Me More and Two Ladies.
