Stage 1 Theatre will be presenting CABARET as our final regular season show of the 2007-2008 season.
Set in 1929-1930 Berlin on the eve of the Nazis' rise to power, CABARET focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and mostly revolves around the cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. A sub-plot involves the romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Emcee, who presides as master of ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub and serves as a constant metaphor for the current state of society in Germany throughout the show.
