Cabaret Columbus Tickets
In a performance both dazzling and unnerving, the Roundabout Theatre Company presents Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall’s Tony Award-winning production of Cabaret. The story follows American writer Cliff Bradshaw and his experience in 1930s Berlin. Not long after he arrives, he finds himself at the notorious Kit Kat Klub cabaret. There, he meets the alluring performer Sally Bowles. He asks her out, but she says no. The next day, she arrives on his doorstep after her boyfriend, the cabaret owner, fires her. They fall in love. As Cliff earns money teaching English to Ernst, a German and Nazi, the couple experiences all the decadence Berlin has to offer them.
As the play goes on, the Nazi rise to power continues. Ernst gives Cliff extra work running errands throughout Europe. As he travels, Cliff sees the coming trouble and urges Sally to leave Berlin with him. As Sally returns the to cabaret and Cliff flees, the musical asks if decadence and denial provide a real escape in dangerous times.
A show for mature viewers, the musical draws the audience into the world of the Kit Kat Klub to “come hear that music play.” A famous story about an infamous club features legendary musical numbers like “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time” and, of course, the title song.
