Let’s get one thing absolutely straight. Rufus Norris’ production is the most stunningly fresh and imaginative revival of a classic musical that I ever seen. Paul Taylor, The Independent

Kander and Ebb’s landmark musical turns Weimar Berlin of 1931 into a dark and sexually charged haven of decadence, its extraordinary and morally ambiguous inhabitants determined to keep up appearances as the real world - outside the comfortable sanctuary of the cabaret - prepares for the nightmarish chaos of war.

Cabaret with Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb and Book by Joe Masteroff is produced by Bill Kenwright.

Rufus Norris directs. Design is by Katrina Lindsay with choreography by Javier De Frutos, lighting by Jean Kalman. The Musical Director is David Steadman.
