Step into the exciting party scene of 1930s Berlin with a racy M.C. as your tour guide through the lens of the seedy Kit Kat Klub. With dancing to do and interesting people to meet, what could possibly break the cycle of fun? Such is the backdrop of Cabaret, one of Producer/Director Harold "Hal" Prince's most innovative musicals. Not only does this piece tell a chilling story of a world-changing time, but it introduces the first ever "concept musical." Join host Sally Fuller with guest host Laura Carman as they explore how this piece stole Academy Awards from the greatest film of all time, discuss why Prince won't do revivals, and reveal why Alan Cumming won't talk to Sally again.
