Step into the dark and decadent Kit Kat Club where excitement is high and inhibitions are low, where the girls are pretty (and so are the boys)! Cabaret singer Sally Bowles and her American lover play out their romance as the Nazi party rises to power in Germany. This award-winning musical features classic Kander and Ebb songs like “Maybe This Time,” “Money,” and of course, “Cabaret.” “What good is sitting alone in your room, come to the Cabaret!”
