Cabaret
Directed by Tom Bruno

Book by Joe Masteroff. Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.
Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish master of ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the cabaret. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich.
