Based on the novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood, screenplay by Jay Allen, directed by Bob Fosse. Starring Liza Minellli, Helmut Griem, Joel Grey and Michael York.

Liza Minelli gives the performance of a lifetime as flamboyant nightclub singer Sally Bowles in Bob Fosse’s classic musical set in 1930s Berlin. Fosse uses the decadence and debauchery of the Kit Kat Klub to mirror the rise to power of the Nazis: spectacular show-stoppers abound in beautifully lit and framed scenes whilst in the background an altogether darker reality is forming. Mesmerizing, sexy and powerful with a bundle of Oscars to its credit, this is a musical not to be missed.

In the words of Sally Bowles, ‘Life is a cabaret, old chum, come to the cabaret!’
