Cabaret by John Kander and Fred Ebb first debuted on Broadway in 1966.  It is set in 1931 in Germany as the Nazis are coming to power.

It takes place in the Kit Kat Club where American writer Cliff Bradshaw is developing a relationship with 32 year old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles.  They are now performing the 50th anniversary tour.

According to the Lansing State Journal, Cabaret really delivers everything you want in a musical:  great music, laughter, great drama, sexy dancing and a compelling, relevant theme.

Director BT McNicholl was an associate director for the 1999 Broadway production and then directed it internationally in Paris and Madrid.  He's now the director for the national tour which is now at the Wharton Center through Sunday.
