Performance Notes

× By John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff. Based on the book by Christopher Isherwood. Join the Kit Kat Klub’s Emcee and Sally Bowles in this relevant and biting look at life in a Berlin night club that is slowly giving way to the Third Reich. Willkommen to Cabaret! Directed by Ed and Susan Schoaps.

In 1919, the German parliamentary body moved from Berlin to the town of Weimar to escape the political and revolutionary turmoil following the dissolution of the army and forced abdication of the Kaiser in the state’s official capital, Berlin, following WWI. This new government abolished the strict censorship laws and sexual restrictions of the former regime, making the German Republic, and in particular its largest city, Berlin, a place of pilgrimage for artists and sexual minorities. These individuals are represented in the Pentacle Theatre production of Cabaret.
