THE LEGENDARY MUSICAL
Cabaret - the show that changed musical theatre forever. Set in pre World War II Berlin, it’s a serious tale of decadence, self-discovery and romance, set against the rise of fascism.
The recent London production, starring Jessie Buckley and Eddie Redmayne, won 7 Olivier awards. With songs like Willkommen, Money Money, Tomorrow Belongs to Me and the eponymous Cabaret, its score is packed with memorable numbers and witty, satirical lyrics.
'Niki Today...a breath of fresh air, fun and sassy yet beautifully vulnerable'
'Sophie de Bruijn as Sally Bowles - what a power!'
'Mimi van Amerongen, as Fräulein Schneider...a beautifully judged performance'
'Jonas Bouckaert - the perfect host.
Cabaret features extraordinary characters, like Sally Bowles and documents the period of German political unrest that led to the holocaust. In these times of Putin and populism, it retains every shred of its relevance. Featuring a live band, QETC’s production is set to be the pinnacle of their 20th anniversary year.
Suitable Age 14+
This production takes its inspiration very much from the original Berlin books by Christopher Isherwood. As a young gay writer, invited there by literati such as Auden and Spender, he finally found the sexual liberation he was denied in Great Britain.
