Importance: High


This production is unforgettable. 


Expect to be entertained by a multiple Tony Award-winning musical, but also expect to leave with a lot to think about. As the cloak of darkness slowly enfolds the outside of the Kit Kat Klub in early 1930's Berlin, the inside of the Kit Kat Klub is rife with narcissism, decadence & selective obliviousness. 


Arizona Repertory Theatre's production of Cabaret is directed by Broadway star Danny Gurwin, also a UA Musical Theatre professor for four years now. It is choreographed by guest artist & Broadway Choreographer, Mark Esposito. The theatre is 260 seats - very intimate. You will be engaged. You will be enthralled. You will leave with some interesting observations & feelings. I doubt you'll keep quiet about all of them. 


See you soon…

UA’s Arizona Repertory Theatre presents CABARET

Book by Joe Masteroff | Based on the play by John Van Druten
& Stories by Christopher Isherwood | Music by John Kander | Lyrics by Fred Ebb

directed by Danny Gurwin | choreographed by Mark Esposito

TUCSON, AZ - Willkommen to the Kit Kat Klub! Berlin is the cultural center of the Weimar Republic, Germany, where creativity, excess, narcissism and political worlds collide. For British singer, Sally Bowles, and a young American journalist, moments of love and the seeds of hate are intertwined with the glitz and tarnish of the cabaret. Created by the genius of John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret captured eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score. Filled with powerful music and dance, Cabaret challenges us to choose between living with oblivious optimism, or facing the stark realities of life.
