Willkommen, Bienvenue, welcome to Cabaret, the huge musical hit that brought Berlin and the story of the famous nightclub girl Sally Bowles world fame. The Broadway production received eight Tony Awards and the acclaimed film adaptation handed its creators an unbelievable eight Oscars. Since Cabaret’s premiere in 2004, over 300,000 guests have seen the renowned production by director and Madonna choreographer Vincent Paterson in Berlin with unabated enthusiasm. This show puts Berlin up there with the best of Hamburg’s musical scene.

Tumble through Berlin of the 1920s! Dance on the edge of the volcano and look deep into its abyss. Welcome to the world of Sally Bowles, who night after night sings "Life is a Cabaret" in one of Berlin's infamous dance venues – the legendary "Kit Kat Klub". Her life between her grubby guesthouse room at Berlin Nollendorfplatz and the nocturnal glamour of the cabaret has always captivated visitors to Berlin. The true musical of the capital – come to the Cabaret!

Berlin finally has an outstanding musical, in fact the Berlin musical par excellence!


Berlin says willkommen as Cabaret comes home!

Perfectly choreographed dancing, buckets of sex appeal, incredibly beautiful vocals and a fantastic band – a blast!


A must!


This ‘cabaret’ is worth the trip.

On New Year's Eve 1929, the American writer Clifford Bradshaw arrives in Berlin on the lookout for inspiration for his new novel. He has enough money to rent a room in a simple guesthouse at Berlin's Nollendorfplatz. He spends the night in one of those wild and exciting haunts of Berlin's nightlife: the Kit Kat Klub.

In the libertine, relaxed atmosphere of the club, Cliff meets the English nightclub singer Sally Bowles. She's looking for a room, he’s looking to achieve his life's goal, and the next day she has moved in with him – despite his misgivings.

The amiable fruit merchant Herr Schultz lives in the guesthouse with them. He likes to spoil the landlady Miss Schneider with rare delicacies in the form of exotic fruit. Just as their delicate bond blooms into an engagement, the Jewish Schultz encounters the hostility of the nascent Nazi movement for the first time. Helpless and fearful, Miss Schneider makes a momentous decision regarding her imminent wedding.

Cliff looks in dismay at the rise of fascism in Berlin. He decides to leave Berlin with Sally. But for her, life is just a stage in a cabaret, too exciting and glamorous to accommodate any interest in politics. Where will the adventure lead for everyone in the end?
