Preview: Cabaret at Sierra Stages
Forget your troubles for an evening and grab a seat at the infamous Kit Kat Klub, setting of the 1966 musical Cabaret and a backdrop for post-World War I Germany. The story centers on the relationship between dancer Sally Bowles and writer Cliff Bradshaw, while in the background the Nazi Party slowly gains power. Sierra Stages revives a story that, more than 50 years later, maintains its relevance with its acute examination of minority scapegoating, militaristic nationalism and the rise of fascism.
