One of the most acclaimed musicals of all time, Cabaret tells the story of Berlin’s seedy Kit Kat Klub and its denizens as they try to find an escape from the reality of the rising tide of Nazism in the fading days of Germany’s Weimar Republic. Although revived a few times since its 1966 Broadway debut, the most recent production helmed by renowned film directors Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Rob Marshall (Chicago) under the auspices of New York City’s Roundabout Theatre Company, inspired by Mendes’ and Marshall’s Tony Award-winning 1998 version, won multiple Tony Awards itself. Now on the road, this take on the darkly dramatic musical by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff makes its Hub debut at the Boston Opera House January 31–February 12, bringing such classic tunes as “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time” and the title song to the downtown Theatre District.
