“Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome.” Follow Sally Bowles downstairs as she navigates the nightclub underworld of Berlin on the edge of fascism. Be drawn into the excesses and decadence of a time where everything was possible – until it wasn’t. Considered one of the greatest musicals ever – presented in a gritty, stripped-down, intimate setting that will extend from the McManus lobby and bar to the stage. Come to the Kit Kat Club, if you dare.

“Some stories become more relevant years or decades after they premiere. This musical is set against a backdrop where a brilliant society becomes a scary, scary world: freedoms become restricted, being unique becomes a threat. Sound familiar?”- Dennis Garnhum
