Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, Cabaret focuses on the nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and examines the complex socio-political climate that allowed the Nazis to rise to power. The plot revolves around a young American writer, CliffBradshaw, and his relationship with an English cabaret performer, the eccentric Sally Bowles. A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Emcee, the master of ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub and a metaphor for the ominous political developments in late Weimar Germany.
