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.

A third-generation puppeteer, Basil Twist is the only American to graduate from France’s École Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette. One of the most creative performers in contemporary theater, Twist works with every conceivable element, including water and wind. Accompanied by a full orchestra in Memorial Hall, Twist will stage his world-premiere work, The Rite of Spring, that transforms traditional puppetry into kinetic fabric sculptures and what he calls “a ballet without dancers.” Twist will also stage his new versions of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and Fireworks, reflecting his ability to interpret a wide range of forms and presentations, from Italian commedia dell’arte to the formalism of a Modernist symphony. Tickets start at $25.
