In here, life is beautiful

  • Video thumbnail for Cabaret

In a world where inexplicable ways can get you down, the Cabaret is one place where everyone can be free. This December, you’re invited to The Kit Kat Club, where it transforms VAC as it’s never been seen before.

In a decadent Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to a second World War. While the world unravels outside, in the Cabaret, life is beautiful.

Intimate and electrify, Cabaret is a fierce, meaty musical that pushes the boundaries of the form and literally holds “the mirror up to nature”, with musical numbers that include the classics “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Maybe This Time”, and “Two Ladies.” Cabaret is a 12-time Tony Award-winning musical, taking home eight in its original run in 1967 and four more in the 1998 revival.

“One of the great Broadway musicals of all time – an exhilarating harrowing masterpiece.” – Time Out New York

We would love for you to get an early glimpse into the world of the Kit Kat Club, plan to arrive well before the show starts!
