"There was a Cabaret, and there was a master of ceremonies and there was a city called Berlin in a country called Germany. It was the end of the world...

and I was dancing with Sally Bowles and we were both fast asleep..."

"A Broadway jewel returns in all its glittering glory!" (Time Out New York). ALAN CUMMING ("The Good Wife," Roundabout's The Threepenny Opera) reprises his Tony®-winning performance as the Emcee in SAM MENDES (Skyfall, American Beauty) and ROB MARSHALL's (Nine and Chicago, the films) Tony-winning production of CABARET. Three-time Academy Award® nominee MICHELLE WILLIAMS (My Week with Marilyn, Brokeback Mountain) also stars, making her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles, alongside Tony nominees DANNY BURSTEIN (Follies) and LINDA EMOND (Death of a Salesman).

Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd—and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times?

Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including "Cabaret," "Willkommen" and "Maybe This Time." Right this way, your table's waiting at CABARET, John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff's Tony-winning musical that the New York Post calls "one for the ages."

CABARET has adult themes and is recommended for audiences over 16 years of age.
