Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Book by Joe Masteroff
Directed by Steve Noll & Dana Pellebon
Music Direction by Evan Lange
Choreography by Lyn Pilch

The classic musical by Kander and Ebb gets a gritty update as the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd – and to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain; will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times?
