Cabaret tickets now available

Cabaret will run Thursday, May 30 to Saturday, June 1 at the Capitol Theatre

Tickets are now available for one of the most successful shows in musical theatre history, Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret.

Adapted from Christopher Isherwood’s 1939 novel Goodbye to Berlin, Cabaret takes place in 1931, when Germany was on the verge of Nazi rule. It is a story about lovers and ill-fated dreams; about the subversion, freedom, and desperation of the underground; about the denial, fear, and decadence of its people living in a society that is collapsing in on itself.

Cabaret debuted on Broadway in 1966; it became a hit, with a staggering 1,165 performances in its first run. The success of the show led to a film adaptation in 1972, starring Liza Minnelli and Michael York, winning eight Academy Awards in 1973. Over the following decades, Cabaret has been revived frequently, with Broadway and London productions having great success, including twelve Tony Awards and three Laurence Olivier Awards.

This new version is directed by Pat Henman, with musical direction by Rick Lingard and choreography by Mackenzie Hope and features some of Nelson’s finest theatre professionals (Michael Graham, Lisel Forst, Sydney Black, Jeff Forst). Cabaret will run Thursday, May 30 to Saturday, June 1 at the Capitol Theatre.

Tickets can be purchased in person at the Capitol Theatre or online at capitoltheatre.bc.ca.
