Cabaret Tickets

A daring revival of the hit musical welcomes audiences to 1930s Berlin, via the immersive Kit Kat Club.

Say Willkommen to Cabaret Musical Tickets

”Come hear the music play” at Cabaret at the Playhouse Theatre! One of London’s hottest musicals beckons you into the Kit Kat Club, where the party starts before you’ve even taken your seats. Kander and Ebb’s classic show has never looked or sounded as good as it has in this star-studded, Olivier Award-winning theatre experience that everyone is talking about.

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.

Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club

The Playhouse Theatre is strikingly reconfigured into an in-the-round venue for an evening of immersive entertainment, and audiences can enjoy a drink and soak in the sights and sounds of Berlin’s most famous club from the moment they step inside. Arrive early to enjoy the Prologue Company’s unmissable pre-show performances in the foyer, before the lights go down and you are asked to take your seats inside the Kit Kat Club.

Director Rebecca Frecknall’s revival of the Tony Award-winning musical mixes politics, hedonism and dazzling choreography from Julia Cheng with iconic songs including “Money”, “Don’t Tell Mama” and "Maybe This Time".

The production has garnered unanimous praise from London theatre critics since it opened in 2021 and won seven Olivier Awards including the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival. Step inside, relax, forget all you think you know about Cabaret, and get ready to experience it as you’ve never seen it before!

The most expensive tickets cost as much as £360. These are table seats, located right in front of the stage and offering a fantastically unique experience of the show.

One audience member who sat in Table Seat L12 described it as “breathtaking”, and noted the immersive aspects including being invited on stage to dance with the cast. For a show like this, which thrills in its period setting and has incredible detail from the moment you step inside, these table seats are a fantastic treat to dress up for and feel like you’ve been dropped right into Berlin’s hedonistic nightclub scene.

How can I get cheap tickets for Cabaret?

Book at least two months in advance for the best availability across all price bands. If you can be flexible, choose an off-peak day because some tickets at Monday - Thursday performances are up to 37% cheaper than the same seats at the weekend.

Dress Circle F19 has an “amazing, close and unobstructed view”, while one of the cheapest seats in the theatre, Upper Circle C3 , is a “bargain price”.
