Role: Sally Bowles

Berlin 1929. 

During the twilight of the Jazz Age as the National socialists are ascending to power, the musical focuses on young American writer Cliff Bradshaw on his travel to Germany. 

He quickly gets swept into the shimmering yet hedonistic nightlife of Berlin. At the seedy Kit Kat Club he meets Sally Bowles, an English cabaret performer and star of the show. 

When she moves in with him, their casual romance quickly turns into love. 

But the effects of the Great Depression and the rise of the national socialist party throw their shadows on the city and its inhabitants who are unaware of the national catastrophe that awaits them.


'Cabaret' was written in 1966 by Joe Masteroff with music by John Kander and  lyrics by Fred Ebb. The musical was based on John Van Druten's 1951 play 'I Am a Camera' which was adapted from 'Goodbye to Berlin' (1939), a semi-autobiographical novel by Anglo-American writer Christopher Isherwood.
