Life is a Cabaret!
Cabaret is set in Berlin in 1931. The Nazis are beginning their rise to power, and In the seedy Kit Kat Klub, young American writer Cliff Bradshaw is drawn into a poignant love affair with a 19-year-old English cabaret performer, Sally Bowles. The drama of their love plays out beneath the ever-present gaze of the mysterious Emcee of the Kit Kat Club, which serves as a symbol of the oppression and excess of Germany's Weimar Republic.
This has to be one of this year's highlights at Norwich Theatre Royal with both Will Young and Michelle Ryan putting on strong entertaining performances to make this a night to remember. Directed by Rufus Norris this revival of Cabaret was a spectacular stage show. The story maybe dark but the audience were completely captivated as Cabaret thrilled us all. Come to the Cabaret, it's divine decadence darling!
