A new dark and edgy production of Kander and Ebb’s “Cabaret” is MacMs’ first show for 2009.
Set in pre-war1929 Berlin on the eve of the Nazis' rise to power, it focuses on nightlife
at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles
and her relationship with young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. Soon they find their relationship
is being jeopardized by outside forces, which threaten to tear them apart.
The same goes with the doomed romance between German boarding house owner
Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor.
Overseeing the action is the Emcee, who presides as master of ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub
and serves as a constant metaphor for the current state of society
in Weimar Germany throughout the show.
