Based on a 1939 novel by Christopher Isherwood and a 1951 play by John Van Druten, Cabaret features music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Cliff Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in Berlin, encounters Sally Bowles at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where she sings. When she is fired by the club’s owner, also her jealous boyfriend, she moves in with Cliff and the two fall in love. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change dramatically.

Why You Should See This Show

Cabaret is a classic musical that sadly never seems to lose relevance and staging it in 2020 presents more challenges than usual. The essence of this musical is that it is meant to be a commentary on political and social issues using the framework of Nazi Germany. 
To present Kander & Ebb’s work without commenting on the current pandemic, racial tensions, and resurgence of fascist rhetoric would do a disservice to the spirit of the piece. Using modern design and avant-garde video and projection elements; we hope to bring new life to this classic cautionary tale.” – Ryan Shealy, Director 

Cabaret will feature the talents of:

Leiah Lewis, Matti-Lynn Chrisman, Justin Woody, Lori Turner, Scott Smith, Jacob Poiner, Anna Scheurer, Emily Bare, Nykera Gardner, Jenna Krivosh, Ellie Nickoli, Jake Sustersic, George Swarn, and Caroline Grace Williams

Directed by Ryan Shealy with Musical Direction by Jacob Poiner
