Based on John
Van Druten's I AM A CAMERA and Christopher Isherwood's BERLIN STORIES, this
award-winning musical turns the pre-war Berlin of 1931 into a sexually charged
haven of decadence. Nightclub entertainer Sally Bowles, who radiantly goes on
with the show as the Nazis rise to power, holds her many male admirers at a
distance that keeps her from having to bother with genuinely deep emotions. They
flock to the Kit Kat Klub night after night as a way of staving off the
inevitable effects of war and dictatorship. They're all living in a morally
ambiguous vacuum of desperate anxiety, determined to keep up appearances as the
real world - the world outside the comfortable sanctuary of the cabaret -
prepares for the nightmarish chaos of war.
