CASA_Cabaret promoCABARET runs July 28th-July 31st & August 4th-August 7th at Cincinnati Actor’s Studio & Academy

Indifference makes you an accomplice.

Cincinnati, OH – CABARET, based on the book Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood, is a social commentary about the dangers of the rise of fascism in 1930s Europe. Book by Joe Masteroff. Music & lyrics by John Kander & Fred Ebb.

CASA, in its goal to have an audience enter the story, not just a theatre, has sprinkled this award-winning show with eye-opening truths about society TODAY. Despite having all of the allure of a cabaret: sensuality, sexuality, provoking costuming, dancing, singing, music, aerial artistry, and comedy, this brazen production draws frightening parallels between then and now.

MUSICAL SYNOPSIS: In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.


“Enter the story, not the theatre.”
