A musical based on John Van Druten's 1951 play I Am a Camera, which was adapted from the short novel Goodbye to Berlin (1939) by Christopher Isherwood, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.
In 1931 Berlin, the seedy Kit Kat Klub plays host to a cabaret where vivacious performers like Sally Bowles can lose their troubles in the glittering nightlife. When Sally meets young American writer Cliff Bradshaw, their relationship blossoms into romance – even as the stark world around them becomes ever threatened by the Nazi rise to power. The 1966 Broadway production became a hit, inspiring numerous subsequent productions in London and New York, as well as the 1972 film by the same name. Fifty years after its debut, Cabaret’s chilling line, “That’s just politics, and what does that have to do with us?” still stands as a grave warning against the perils of blind patriotism.
