SYNOPSIS

Cabaret is brilliantly adapted from the acclaimed stage production, which was in turn inspired by Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories. Inside the Kit Kat Club of 1931 Berlin, starry-eyed singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) and an impish emcee (Joel Grey) sound the clarion call to decadent fun, determined to keep up appearances as the real world — the world outside the comfortable sanctuary of the cabaret — faces the nightmarish prospect of war.
