Cabaret
Book by Joe Masteroff, Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, Music by John Kander, Lyrics Fred Ebb

In here, life is beautiful
"Willkommen" to Kander and Ebb's iconic musical Cabaret, which transports us to the seedy underbelly of 1931 Berlin and the dynamic, dark, and hedonistic Kit Kat Klub. As Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich, the Klub's entertainers and patrons must decide if they'll wake up to the evil just outside the stage door or continue to escape to the alluring sexually liberated fantasy world of the Kit Kat Klub. Since its debut in 1967, this classic musical has won countless awards, including the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Revival of a Musical. This hit-maker is full of vibrant and beloved songs like "Willkommen," "Maybe This Time," "Money," "Don't Tell Mama,"and, the titular "Cabaret."
