Musical Broadway classic and hit film Cabaret re-creates the decadent and complicated world of 1929 Berlin at the Arlington Heights venue Metropolis Performing Arts Centre on Sept. 15-Oct. 22.
Cabaret is Kander and Ebb's legendary musical masterpiece about British nightclub singer Sally Bowles, U.S. writer Cliff Bradshaw and the decadence of 1929 Berlin.
With mounting fear and uncertainty of an emerging Third Reich, audiences are lured into the sordid underworld of the Kit Kat Club. With the emcee's wry commentary, Cabaret explores this dark and tumultuous time with songs "Maybe This Time," "Don't Tell Mama," "Money," "Cabaret" and more. To further complicate the growing unrest, a relationship develops between German boarding house owner Fraulein Schneider and her suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor.
Cabaret is the first show of the 202223 subscription series, which also includes The Legend of Georgia McBride (Jan. 26-March 4, 2023), Ragtime (May 4-June 10, 2023) and Xanadu (July 13-Aug. 19, 2023).
Tickets for Cabaret previews are $40 and tickets for the regular run are $45. They can be purchased online at MetropolisArts.com, via phone at 847-577-2121 or via email at email@example.com .
