Showing at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre from Tuesday 28th November to Saturday 2nd December for ONE WEEK ONLY, CABARET  is a dazzling treat. The musical masterpiece stars WILL YOUNG as Emcee, a part that earned him an Olivier nomination, & the fabulous LOUISE REDKNAPP as Sally Bowles.

We’re probably all familiar with the story of Cabaret – surely everyone remembers Liza Minelli from the 1972 movie version – what a performance!

“Life is a Cabaret old chum, come to the Cabaret.”


It starts off with a ‘good boy-meets- bad girl’ premise.

Aspiring novelist Clifford Bradshaw arrives in Berlin in the early 1930s with his typewriter and chronic writer’s block. While taking in the sights at the seedy Kit Kat Klub—an emblem of the utter decadence of the era—he meets Sally, a singer at the underground club. They fall madly in love and spend far too much time hopping from party to party, before various romantic and sexual complications begin to rain down.

It’s an engaging story, set in a fascinating time – a prelude to Nazi Germany.

Definitely a must-see!
