von der Heyden Studio Theater, The Rubenstein Arts Center, Duke University

Set in a Berlin nightclub as the 1920’s draw to a close, Cabaret explores the dark and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. While the Master of Ceremonies assures the audience that they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret, Cliff, a young American writer, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered Jewish fruit seller.
