“Cabaret” is set in Berlin during the twilight of the Jazz Age. At the seedy Kit Kat Klub a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. The musical focuses on the hedonistic nightlife and revolves around American writer Clifford Bradshaw’s relations with English cabaret performer Sally Bowles as the Nazis are ascending to power.
Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “The Money Song,” “Two Ladies,” and “Tomorrow Belongs to Me.”

Schindele (Ernst Ludwig), Sam Barrasso (Fraulein Kost).

“Cabaret” opened on Broadway on November 20, 1966, and played for 1,165 performances at the Broadhurst, Imperial, and Broadway Theatres. The London production ran for 336 performances at the Palace Theatre. The show was revised for Broadway, first in 1987, when it played for 261 performances at the Imperial and Minskoff Theatres, and again in 1998 at Studio 54, where it played for 2,377 performances. In 2014, Cabaret returned to Broadway at Studio 54, playing an additional 388 performances.
