Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Bob Fosse

WITH: Liza Minnelli, Michael York, Helmut Griem, Marisa Berenson, Joel Grey

An iconic, incredibly stylish study of the hedonism and sexual ambiguity of pre-war Berlin, Cabaret was a huge, multi Oscar-winning hit for choreographer and director Bob Fosse in 1972 and made Liza Minnelli (who won Best Actress) a star. To this day a vibrant and singular musical, with its focus on the dark heart of 30s Berlin centred around a truly fabulous performance from Minnelli as Bowles, evincing both exuberance and vulnerability as she wields glamour against despair.
