The time is the late 1920s. The place is the Kit Kat Klub in Berlin, Germany. And the story is about the relationship between a mesmerizing English Cabaret dancer, Sally Bowles, and an American writer, Clifford Bradshaw.
All will be revealed of their interaction through songs such as “Maybe This Time,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” and “Willkommen” in the 1966 Broadway hit and Tony Award-winning musical “Cabaret.”
In the smoldering rubble of lost dreams after World War I, the roaring ’20s raged across the globe as people sought new dreams and ways to forget the old ones. The world of the underground speak-easy and Cabarets flourished as did the questions of morality and totalitarian ideologies.
And an American novelist seeks inspiration for his next book. Instead, he steps into a world teetering on the brink of war, clashing virtues, a desperate search for reveries and Hitler’s march toward a thousand year Reich.
