Cabaret is a Tony Award winning musical set in the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy nightclub in Berlin, Germany at the end of the 1920s. In the midst of a post-World War I economic depression, and the Third Reich emerging into power, Cliff, an American writer, has just arrived in Berlin. Cliff is immediately taken with the vivacious cabaret performer, Sally Bowles, the tawdry charm of the Kit Kat Klub, and its omniscient host, the Emcee, who invites guests to leave their troubles outside. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, the proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with a mild-mannered Jewish fruit seller, Herr Schultz.
