Cabaret description

Cabaret tickets – True romance set against a tragic backdrop.

The winner of two Olivier awards, the smash hit musical Cabaret caused a stir when it hit the West End stage in 2006. Inspired by the classic musical by Kander and Ebb, Rufus Norris’s version has a lasting appeal.

In a fast-paced story set in dangerous pre-war Germany, you’ll meet Sally Bowles, a beautiful night club performer working out of the notorious Kit Kat Club in 1930s Berlin. You’ll thrill to the story of her affair with the handsome American writer Cliff Bradshaw. It’s 1931 and the Nazi Party’s grim influence is starting to pervade the country. When Cliff falls deeply in love with nineteen year old Sally, the drama unfolds under the threatening gaze of the night club’s Emcee, a shadowy presence symbolising the horrific times to come, and the tension builds unstoppably like an ugly, dark storm cloud.

Sing along to well-loved tunes including Willkommen, Mein Herr, Telephone Dance and Perfectly Marvellous, So What?, Don't Tell Mama and more, and absorb the thrilling plot as it moves to its conclusion. The choreography is simply marvellous, the costumes are to die for and the storyline will have you on the edge of your seat as the drama unfolds. It’s especially poignant because the show deals with a real period in history, with a deep emotional impact. No wonder millions of us have taken Cabaret to our hearts.

The show continues to sell out. The plot is so vivid that you’ll find it hard not to leap out of your seat to warn the characters of the inevitable. But all you can do is sit, helpless, spellbound and riveted by this West End musical masterpiece.

Book your Cabaret cheap tickets now and send yourself on a journey you’ll never forget, with an amazing set and stunning period costumes, well-loved tunes and accomplished acting. What a treat!
