Cabaret


  • Blackman Auditorium 360 Huntington Avenue Boston, MA 02115 (map)

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.
