    Enter the tantalizing world of The Kit Kat Klub in 1930s Berlin, where beguiling, self-destructive chanteuse Sally Bowles lives with no thought for tomorrow. One of the defining musicals of all time, Cabaret intertwines social history with dazzling entertainment in new and dangerous ways. The decadence of a Weimar nightclub becomes a shattered mirror reflecting a society spiraling toward disaster with the rise of Hitler’s Nazis. Hosted with lascivious charm by the Emcee, played by Obie Award-winning Taylor Mac (PRC2 The Young Ladies Of…). Tickets start at $15.
