Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin, during the rise of the Nazis. It was an incredibly liberal and liberated time in Berlin and Cabaret explores a sexy nightclub that involves homosexual, bisexual, and transgender characters. As the play progresses the Nazis gain more power and we see that these people’s lives are on the brink of destruction. We know that a year from now these character will most likely die, but the tragedy is watching them deny what is to come. Our main theme is the song “What Would You Do?".
