Leave your troubles outside. Take a seat at the hottest club in town – Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome.
Cabaret, one of the most successful musicals of all time returns to London’s West End this November.
Director Rebecca Frecknall (Summer & Smoke) reimagines John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff‘s Tony-winning musical – in a bold new immersive production starring Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, Tony and Olivier award winner Eddie Redmayne as ‘The Emcee’ and Bafta Nominee and British Independent Film award winner Jessie Buckley as ‘Sally Bowles’.
Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including Willkommen, Don’t Tell Mama, Mein Herr, Money, Maybe This Time and the title song in the 2021 West End revival of Cabaret.
Cabaret will begin performances on 15 November 2021 at the Kit Kat Club (Playhouse Theatre).
What’s the Story?
Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Club, where 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?
Who’s in it? Cabaret Cast
Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Les Misérables and the Fantastic Beasts series) will play Emcee alongside Jessie Buckley (Judy, Fargo, Wild Rose, Chernobyl) in the role of Sally Bowles.
