Set against the tumult and sheer chaos of Germany’s 1929 Berlin, the alluring emcee invites all to engage in willful ignorance and revel in the lustful delights inside the legendary Kit Kat Club. “Here…life is beautiful.” With hedonistic abandon, these riveting characters live life as a carnival of debauchery and despair. Winning Tony Awards for Best Musical for the 1966 Broadway premiere and for Best Revival of a Musical in 1998, this provocative and challenging style of storytelling packs a potent punch on the dangers of mass indifference in the face of injustice and atrocities and asks audiences to either act now or say “so what?”
