Area Stage presents the acclaimed stage musical Cabaret. Cliff Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in Berlin, encounters singer Sally Bowles at the seedy Kit Kat Klub. When she is fired by the club’s owner — her jealous boyfriend — she moves in with Cliff and the two fall in love.
As the Nazis begin taking control of the government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change.
A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub.
The club serves as a metaphor for ominous political developments in late Weimar Germany.
