Synopsis In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920&1939's 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 1930's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and
tumultuous life of Berlin 1930's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging
Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with
English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally 1930's

who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen", "Cabaret", "Don't Tell
Mama" and "Two Ladies."
