The Davis Musical Theatre Company presents Kander & Ebb’s masterpiece “Cabaret,” highlighting the decadence of 1920s Germany with the rise of the Third Reich.
The show opens Friday, Jan. 3, and runs through Jan. 26, with performances at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays. It is directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson with a full orchestra under the direction of Jonathan Rothman.
The play is set in a nightclub in Berlin as the 1920s are drawing to a close. The Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the cabaret.
