Berlin, 1929: The "Roaring Twenties" are only faintly glowing. Unemployment and social unrest lead to uncertainty, hopelessness, and instability. The rise of the National Socialists seems unstoppable. Cliff Bradshaw, a young American writer, travels to Berlin to write a novel there. On the train, he befriends Ernst Ludwig. The kind man takes Cliff under his wing, and so Cliff also gets to know the Kit-Kat Club, where he meets the singer Sally Bowles. She is the star of the show! He falls in love with her.
At the same time, sparks fly between the landlady Fraulein Schneider and the fruit seller Herr Schulz. But the political developments overshadow the whole scene. The threat grows, the time gets darker, and everything turns into a dance on the volcano.
In the successful musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb from 1966, the audience is presented with a story about Berlin in the late twenties against the backdrop of the emerging National Socialism, with everything that entails: humor, love, and great passion.
