The Kit Kat Club is waiting for you!

Nominated for nine 2024 Tony Awards!

In here, life is beautiful! Performed in purpose-built new space at the August Wilson Theatre, this fabulous revival of the Kander and Ebb favorite recently broke records during its London run, having been awarded seven Olivier awards, including Best Musical Revival. 

With Eddie Redmayne reprising his role as the sinister Emcee opposite Gayle Rankin as Sally Bowles and musical theatre royalty Bebe Neuwirth as Fraulein Schneider, this exciting new staging of the iconic musical is one hot ticket!

From our review of the London performance "At its heart, Cabaret is a story of ignorance and doomed hope. It appeals during this omnishambles of a world, offering sweet surrender inside the club while the world outside burns, and in here, life is beautiful. If I could stay forever, I would." 

What's it about?

A doomed romance in a city that dances on the edge of oblivion, Cabaret is one of the true classics of musical theatre, weaving together strands of debauchery and terror to capture a moment in time, that despite the warning, is ever in danger of being repeated. Featuring Kander and Ebb's unforgettable music, Cabaret is the story of an American writer and an entrancing showgirl who find themselves in Weimar-era Berlin, as the shadow of fascism grows in the country. From inside the decadence of the Kit Kat club, they and their fellow artists, creatives, freaks, and weirdos attempt to eek every last bit of freedom before the Nazis take over.
