What is the Cabaret musical about?The Master of Ceremonies welcomes you to the decadent world of the dingy, free-spirited cabaret in which English dancer Sally Bowles and American writer Cliff Bradshaw strike up a relationship. Meanwhile, on the streets outside, the Nazi Party is on the rise and the city’s freedom is under threat.
Musical theatre duo Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret is a classic that has been performed the world over and immortalised on screen in a film starring Liza Minnelli.
