An iconic, incredibly stylish study of the hedonism and sexual ambiguity of pre-war Berlin, Cabaret was a huge, multi Oscar-winning hit for choreographer and director Bob Fosse, and made Liza Minnelli a star.

It sets its scene in Berlin during the 1931 Weimar Republic, against a backdrop of increasing antisemitism and the growing Nazi Party. Brian, a new British arrival in the city, befriends Sally Bowles, a talented performer at the risqué Kit Kat Klub.
