Meine damen, und harren, mes dames et messieurs- ladies and gentlemen the Melon Patch is proud to present:
In a seedy Berlin nightclub at the turn of the New Year 1930, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience, assuring them that, “We have no troubles here! Here, life is beautiful!” But with the Emcee’s bawdy songs serving as wry commentary to the action, Cabaret explores the heady and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich.
Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, the aging proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with the widower Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Featuring such famous numbers as “Willkommen”, “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Maybe This Time”, and the titular “Cabaret”, this thought-provoking and multiple Tony Award-winning darkly comedic cautionary tale of “interesting characters living through a difficult time” (New Haven Review) is sure to be an unforgettable experience for all!
