Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles, and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd – and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times?
Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” "Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.” Leave your troubles outside – life is beautiful at Cabaret – John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff’s Tony-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way.
The all-new production launches December 2017 in Worcester, Massachusetts, with tour direction by BT McNicholl (Spamalot), tour choreography by Jennifer Werner, and original costume design by William Ivey Long (Chicago, Cinderella). A company of 21 quadruple threat performers (actors, singers, dancers, and musicians) features Erik Schneider as the Emcee and Bailey McCall Thomas as Sally Bowles.
“For the first time in 16 years, we can say ‘Willkommen’ to Cabaret returning to Nashville,” says Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC president and chief executive officer. “Cabaret is a Broadway classic with iconic songs presented with fresh new direction and choreography from Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall. Based on the Tony Award-winning Roundabout Theatre Company production, this masterpiece by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff will enthrall audiences returning to the Kit Kat Klub or experiencing it for the first time.”
