Originally entitled 'Welcome to Berlin,' 'Cabaret' is based on John Van Druten's play 'I Am a Camera,' which in turn was adapted from the novel 'Mr. Norris Changes Trains' and a collection of short stories, 'Goodbye to Berlin,' by Christopher Isherwood.

Set in 1929-1930 Berlin on the eve of the Nazis' rise to power, the play focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and mostly revolves around the English 19-year-old cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw. A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Emcee, who presides as master of ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub and serves as a constant metaphor for the current state of society in Weimar Germany throughout the show.

Kander & Ebb's marvelous, ominous musical at Le Petit
by David Cuthbert
Times Picayune 6/13/08

Notes: This production of Cabaret is actually a continuation of sorts of the production of Cabaret that was scheduled to open the 2005 season of Le Petit Theatre. It was slated to run in the Muriel's Cabaret Theatre due to ongoing construction of the new orchestra pit in the Mainstage area. The production was well into rehearsals when hurricane Katrina struck, prompting the dismantling of the show.
