Cabaret is a musical based on a book written by Chrisopher Isherwood, with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.
It is based on the short novel Goodbye to Berlin and is set in 1931 Berlin just as the Nazis are rising to power. The play focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer, Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young american writer, Cliff Bradshaw.
A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub which serves as a constant metaphor for the tenuous and threatening state of late Weimar Germany throughout the show.
Admiral Costumes have a wonderful selection of costumes suitable for this show including, matching tailcoats with sequinned lapels, sparkly waistcoats, glamorous show dresses, nazi uniforms and 1930’s daytime and evening wear.
