About Cabaret

Willkommen. Bienvenue. Welcome to the Kit Kat Club. The Playhouse Theatre is newly transformed, so get ready to step into a theatrical paradise. Cabaret tickets are available on London Theatre now.

Set in early 1930s Berlin, American writer Cliff Bradshaw meets English cabaret singer Sally Bowles, a performer at the Kit Kat Club. But the rise of Nazism threatens this hedonistic Weimar Republic haven.

Cabaret’s enduring success is partly down to Kander and Ebb’s indelible score, with songs like “Wilkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Meir Herr,” “Money,” and, or course, the great torch song “Maybe This Time.” This production offers an exciting chance to discover, or revisit, Kander and Ebb’s still hugely resonant musical.

The Cabaret London musical won seven Olivier Awards, with original cast members Eddie Redmayne, Jessie Buckley, Liza Sadovy, and Elliot Levey. The show features luxury casting, as well as a transformed theatre to provide optimum watching for one of the most-known musicals of all time. Rebecca Frecknall directs, with Tom Scutt providing set and costume design, and choreography by Julia Cheng.

The celebrated Cabaret musical opened on Broadway in November 1966, directed by Harold Prince, and has been a hit on both stage and screen, with Bob Fosse’s film version, starring Liza Minnelli, winning eight Oscars.

Dame Judi Dench led the original West End version, and, in 1993, Sam Mendes’s Donmar Warehouse production, starring Jane Horrocks and Alan Cumming, was greatly acclaimed. Cumming returned for the 2014 Broadway revival, which starred first Michelle Williams, then Emma Stone, and finally Sienna Miller.

Who wrote the Cabaret musical?

Cabaret is based on Christopher Isherwood’s short stories in Goodbye to Berlin, and John Van Druten’s play, I Am a Camera. Harold Prince led the Cabaret musical creation, teaming up with Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb to bring the stories to life. Find out more about Cabaret in London.

Where is Cabaret playing?

This new Cabaret West End production plays at the Kit Kat Club. It promises a very special audience experience. The theatre is reconfigured to seat viewers in the round, creating more intimacy and immersing audiences in the action — there's a limited seating capacity of 550.

'Cabaret' at the Kit Kat Club review — Come to the cabaret with Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley

4 of 5

We have no troubles here. In here, life is beautiful.The Kit Kat Club is the ultimate escape. After a difficult or even ordinary day, the fanfare, glitz, and glamour feel like a portal to another time, where you'll be greeted with complimentary schnapps, dancing chorus members, and a lascivious pre-show smorgasbord. From the gilded lobby, disco-lit basement, and everywhere in between, the...
