Cabaret Portland Tickets
The musical Cabaret comes to Portland’s Keller Auditorium in this Tony Award-winning production performed by the nationally-renowned Roundabout Theatre Company. In a show that’s both dazzling and gritty (and best for mature audiences), the musical transports you to Berlin’s Kit Kat Klub where audiences enjoy famous numbers like “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time” and the show’s title song “Cabaret.” The Houston Chronicle calls this production “a devastatingly relevant work of art” and “a harrowing, heartbreaking show that will stay with you.” The Chicago Tribune declares it to be “a ‘Cabaret’ with fresh ways to make us squirm.” A Broadway box office sensation, the show is currently on tour throughout the U.S.
American writer Cliff Bradshaw comes to 1930s Berlin looking for inspiration. Not long after he arrives, Bradshaw ends up at the Kit Kat Klub, Berlin’s infamously decadent cabaret. There he meets British performer and headliner Sally Bowles, asks her out unsuccessfully, only to find her on his doorstep the following morning. Fired the previous night by her jealous boyfriend and cabaret owner, Sally moves in and they fall in love. Cliff earns money doing work for a German who turns out to be a Nazi. As Cliff and Sally enjoy the Berlin nightlife, the Nazis continue their rise to power. Seeing the danger, Cliff decides to leave and begs Sally to come with him; she instead chooses to return to the cabaret.
