Book Cabaret tickets to see this star-studded revival of one of the most iconic musicals of all time
Willkommen! Enter the Kit Kat Club for an evening of excess, glamour and darkness in a brand new production of the beloved musical Cabaret at the Playhouse Theatre.
The theatre will be transformed into the famous Kit Kat Club, taking audiences to the heart of underground Berlin. Outside the city’s freedoms are being challenged by the rising power of the Nazi Party, but once the doors are closed this is one place where everyone is free to be themselves.
Centred around the relationship between American writer Clifford Bradshaw and English cabaret singer Sally Bowles, Cabaret is a powerful exploration of 1930s Berlin where hedonism clashes with the changing world. The revelry at the Kit Kat Club is overseen by the enigmatic Emcee, where the drinks keep flowing and everyone can lose themselves to song and dance.
The Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club cast is currently led by BAFTA Award nominee Callum Scott Howells (It’s a Sin) as the Emcee and Emmy nominee Madeline Brewer (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Sally Bowles. Between 30 January and 11 February, Emily Benjamin and Matthew Gent appear in the lead roles.
From 13 February, Aimee Lou Wood (Sex Education) and John McCrea (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) star, with Benjamin appearing at certain performances as Sally.
The cast also features Sid Sagar as Cliff Bradshaw, Vivien Parry as Fraulein Schneider, Richard Katz as Herr Schultz, Danny Mahoney as Ernst Ludwig and Michelle Bishop as Fraulein Kost.
The musical features a score filled with classic songs from musical theatre, including “Maybe This Time”, “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Willkommen”, and of course the unforgettable title track “Cabaret”. This new production is directed by Rebecca Frecknall (Summer & Smoke), with set and costume design by Tom Scutt, choreography by Julia Cheng, lighting by Isabella Byrd and sound design by Nick Lidster.
Promising an intimate and exhilarating production of this classic musical with an all-star cast, Cabaret tickets are some of the hottest in London right now.
