The Berlin’s Hotspot: The musical is based on John Van Druten’s 1951 play I Am a Camera, which was adapted from Christopher Isherwood’s 1939 novel Goodbye to Berlin. Isherwood’s novel drew upon his experiences in the impoverished Weimar Republic and his close friendship with a nineteen-year-old cabaret singer. Cabaret’s original Broadway production premiered on November 20, 1966, at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City, running for 1,166 performances.
This acclaimed musical has inspired numerous subsequent productions in both London and New York, as well as a 1972 film adaptation with the same title. Cabaret In London debuted in the West End on February 28, 1968, at the Palace Theatre, featuring Judi Dench as Sally, Kevin Colson as Cliff, Barry Dennen as the Emcee, Lila Kedrova as Fräulein Schneider, and Peter Sallis as Herr Schultz. It ran for 336 performances and has been revived multiple times.
The latest West End production includes well-known songs such as “Wilkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Mein Herr,” “Maybe This Time,” “Money,” and the titular number “Cabaret.” Cabaret in London is the record-breaking winner of 7 Olivier Awards, including ‘Best Musical Revival.’ The film was added to The National Film Registry in 1995 for its historical, cultural, and aesthetic significance.
Fred Ebb and composer John Kander wrote the song “I Don’t Care Much” at a dinner party. Sally Bowles, the main character, is based on a real person, Jean Ross, an aspiring Cabaret singer who lived in Berlin in the 1930s. In preparation for her role in the film, Liza Minnelli tried to locate the ‘real Sally Bowles’ (Jean Ross), but was unsuccessful. Although “Mein Herr” and “Money, Money” were written exclusively for the film, they have since become integral parts of the musical. The creators of the stage show didn’t like the film on their first watch, but they described it as “extraordinary” after watching it again.
In these times of profound change, a place exists where people can feel free to be themselves. Welcome to the Kit Kat Club, the home of an exhilarating and intimate new production of CABARET. The setting is Berlin, a city that encourages relaxation and self-expression. This musical has been a resounding success over the years, and this new West End production boasts some of its most famous songs including Wilkommen, Don’t Tell Mama, Mein Herr, Maybe This Time, Money, and the title number Cabaret. The Kit Kat Club, a famous Berlin establishment, is brought to life through the stunning transformation of London’s Playhouse Theatre. CABARET IN LONDON AT THE KIT KAT CLUB features music by John Lander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and a book by Joe Masteroff, based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

The Playhouse Theatre in London has been transformed into the Kit Kat Club. Originally known as the Royal Avenue Theatre, it opened in 1882 and hosted shows for 23 years before closing for renovations. Sadly, during the refurbishment, six people died due to the roof of Charing Cross railway station collapsing.

In recent years, it has staged West End revivals such as An Inspector Calls, 1984, and La Cage Aux Folles. The venue was redesigned to accommodate The Jungle, which premiered at the Young Vic and transferred to the Playhouse Theatre in 2018. With a seating capacity of 786 seats, the Playhouse Theatre offers seating in the Stalls, Dress Circle, and Upper Circle. It is located in the West End, near the Trafalgar Theatre, and is now home to Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club.
