Maverick Theatre Company: 'Cabaret'
Based on the 1998 Broadway revival, Cabaret is set in 1920s Berlin where countercultures flourish and go to mix each night at the Kit Kat Club. As politicians fight to rebuild Germany amid economic turmoil, a Master of Ceremonies assures the audience that they will escape all their troubles. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately swept up by the city and English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a humble fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. As the Third Reich rises to power, the life of the cabaret and its patrons is threatened. How long can they ignore what is happening around them?
Exploring adult themes of sexual liberation, white supremacy, and a woman’s right to choose—Cabaret is a darker style of musical comedy. The Tony Award-winning score by John Kander and Fred Ebb includes numbers like "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama," and "Two Ladies."
This production contains mature content and adult situations. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
