Wilkommem! Bienvenue! Welcome! to the provocative and sexy world of CABARET at the Salon Perdu Spiegeltent, Auckland Theatre Company's very own Kit Kat Klub.
Berlin, 1930. Young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, arrives in a city caught in the gathering storm of Nazism. At the giddy, glitzy and garish Kit Kat Klub he falls for irrepressible English chanteuse Sally Bowles. She's partying like there's no tomorrow and she leads him into an underworld of divine decadence and dark prophecy.
Under the sardonic gaze of the Klub's Emcee, the two share dreams of a future that will never be in a world out of control and racing towards disaster.
An intoxicating mix of outrageous dance, political warning and unforgettable show tunes, such as MEIN HERR, MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND, IF YOU COULD SEE HER THROUGH MY EYES and DON'T TELL MAMA, this is CABARET as you've never seen it before - up close and intimate.
