THRILLING THEATRE MEETS WORLD POLITICS IN THIS TIMELY AND RELEVANT LOOK AT A DARK PERIOD IN HISTORY AND HOW WE MOVE FORWARD
Lights go up in a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close. The EMCEE bids you ,the audience, a fond welcome and assures you that you will forget all your troubles at the cabaret. The troubles may be forgotten for a moment, but the troubles are still very much there. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as flashy and performative escapism laced with wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich.
Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Mein Herr.”
Recommended for ages 13 and up.
