Come to the ‘Cabaret’

By |2008-01-03T09:00:00-05:00January 3rd, 2008|Entertainment|
Stagecrafters produces oddly familiar musical

Based on the play by John Van Druten
and Stories by Christopher Isherwood

The unthinkable is happening. Civil liberties are trampled, private security forces are terrorizing innocent civilians, people are imprisoned without trial, military might is glorified, and illegal aliens are considered a dangerous threat.
Although it could be mistaken for today’s news headlines, it is the political backdrop for “Cabaret,” set in 1930s Berlin. An English nightclub singer, an American writer, a German landlady and a Jewish fruit vendor find their destinies linked and their futures uncertain as Europe stands on the brink of devastation. Their dreams for the future are finally shattered as their lives are inexorably drawn towards the horrors of World War II. Follow the seductive Master of Ceremonies as he bids you to “leave your troubles outside” and experience the sights and sounds of the decadent Kit Kat Club.
