Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome…to Cabaret. More than a half-century after its Broadway debut, John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff’s Tony®-winning musical endures as a force of unforgettable songcraft and scintillating social commentary.

At the infamous Kit Kat Club—in pre-World War II Germany—the Emcee, Sally Bowles, and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize crowds…and leave their troubles outside. But as life and politics grow increasingly uncertain and unstable, will the decadent allure of Berlin’s nightlife be enough for all of them to survive dangerous times?

This touring production is based on the Roundabout Theatre Company’s Tony® Award-winning revival, creatively shepherded by stage-and-screen legends Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) and Rob Marshall (Into the Woods, Chicago). Through some of musical theatre’s most memorable numbers—including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen,” and “Maybe This Time”—Cabaret explores the costs and consequences of following your heart as the world loses its way.

Cabaret is set largely in the Kit Kat Club where racy dancing and saucy language take center stage.
