Cabaret
Book by Joe Masteroff
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb

Mar. 16 - Apr. 14, 1990
Directed by Michelle DeLong


Jef Fontana, Kathleen Hope, Suzanne Charney, Charlie Dickerson, David Dobson, and Kathy Van Every in CABARET

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.
