Winner of seven Olivier Awards including Best Revival, director Rebecca Frecknall's production of Cabaret in the West End is an immersive experience, transforming the entire theatre into the Kit Kat Club. There, writer Clifford Bradshaw meets performer Sally Bowles, the Emcee, and more eccentric performers while the Nazi regime slowly rises around them.
