“Willkommen! And bienvenue!” to Kander and Ebb’s Tony-winning Cabaret, where the world burns brightly with desire and debauchery. In 1929 Berlin, Cliff arrives to work on his novel but finds himself swept up in the life of the cabaret with its bawdy Emcee, and swept away by the performer and provocateur Sally Bowles. Bunked together at Fräulein Schneider’s boarding house, their impossible affair bumps up against the threatened love between their landlord and a Jewish fruit seller. From the opening notes of “Willkommen” through the title song and such classics as “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Money,” Cabaret delivers a raw theatrical experience on a knife’s edge between unbridled sexuality and looming disaster. Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot, Kiss Me Kate) makes his OTC debut.

Sit onstage for Cabaret

Our set design for Cabaret includes room for a limited number of audience members to sit onstage at every performance. Sit in the Kit Kat Klub at cocktail tables as close to the action as it gets. These special seats are in short supply and will go quickly!
