"There was a cabaret, and there was a Master-of-Ceremonies and there was a city called Berlin in a country called Germany. It was the end of the world...and I was dancing with Sally Bowles and we were both asleep…"

Welcome to the Kit Kat Club, the hottest nightspot in 1929's seedy and sinful Berlin. American writer Cliff Bradshaw travels to Germany in search of inspiration and pleasure, and finds both in nightclub performer Sally Bowles. However, outside the club's doors, the Nazis' impending rise to power threatens to splinter their decadent lifestyle. Featuring one of Broadway's most memorable scores, Cabaret kicks off the Arden's 30th Anniversary Season.

Critical Acclaim -

"At Arden's opening of "Cabaret" on Wednesday, I witnessed a show so flawlessly reinterpreted and performed, it was something new. "
- Newsworks Read more here

 

"The Arden is an ideally intimate venue for the show, and the scenic design is terrific. The on-stage orchestra and conductor Alex Bechtel are excellent. Several numbers are exceptionally well delivered—“Don’t Tell Mama,”especially."
- Philadelphia Magazine Read more here

 

"John Jarboe, one of the Bearded Ladies Cabaret's masterminds, is great as the iconic Emcee."
- Broad Street Review Read more here

 

"Given the current political climate and the rise of the so-called “alt-right,” CABARET has taken on a level of relevance perhaps greater than at any other point in its fifty-year history. "
- Phindie Read more here
