In a time when the world is changing forever, there is one place where everyone can be free… Welcome to the Kit Kat Club, home to an intimate and electrifying new production of Cabaret. This is Berlin. Relax. Loosen up. Be yourself.

The Kit Kat Club has laid siege to the Playhouse Theatre. The performers have infiltrated the premises. The artists have staked their claim. Who knows for how long they’ll stay, but for now they are enjoying the party. The party at the end of the world.

Cabaret features songs including “Wilkommen”, “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Mein Herr”, “Maybe This Time”, “Money” and the unforgettable title number. It has music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, a book by Joe Masteroff and is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Cabaret is directed by Rebecca Frecknall (Summer and Smoke), with set and costume design by Tom Scutt, choreography by Julia Cheng, musical supervision and direction by Jennifer Whyte, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, sound design by Nick Lidster, casting by Stuart Burt and associate direction from Jordan Fein.
