Tuesday: "Cabaret"

April 26

Enter the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy nightclub in 1930s Berlin. The Tony-award winning show follows Sally Bowles, the club's star, and her relationship with American writer Cliff Bradshaw during the rise of the Third Reich. More tragedy than love story, "Cabaret" captures the uncertainty, denial, and then dread of a nation through the lens of the dark, sometimes hilarious, often absurd underground sanctuary for the sexually-deviant, led by the Emcee. John Kander and Fred Ebb (the team who also composed the music for "Chicago") amuse with songs like 'Two Ladies' and 'Money' before sobering you up with the mournful 'What Would You Do?' and totally underappreciated 'I Don’t Care Much.' Through May 1, Hippodrome Theatre,12 N. Eutaw St., (410) 837-7400, france-merrickpac.com, $42-$142. (Taylor DeVille)
