"Cabaret"

Thurs-Fri: 8:00 PM | Sat: 2:00 PM & 8:00 PM , April 13, 2024 | Roxy's Downtown

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as 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. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Two Ladies."

"A stunning musical... this marionette's-eye view of a time and place in our lives that was brassy, wanton, carefree and doomed to crumble is brilliantly conceived."– Walter Kerr, The New York Times

"A masterpiece of musical theatre... Cabaret unfolds as a haunting portrait of the decadent world of early 1930’s Germany. - Tom Williams, ChicagoCritic.com
 
"Stunning... a masterpiece of musical theater penned as a cautionary tale and not at all leavened by the embrace of paradox." - Chris Jones, The Chicago Tribune
 
"John Kander and Fred Ebb’s musical drama Cabaret, with Book by Joe Masteroff, is a show that keeps on giving.... a musical that shows interesting characters living through a difficult time, with great songs and mood and atmosphere." - Donald Brown, New Haven Review
