Copenhagen Theatre Circle will be staging Kander & Ebb’s timeless musical Cabaret as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations.
Although Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin, as the Nazis are rising to power, its themes remain relevant today. Rising nationalism, populism, and the “us and them” rhetoric still threaten, divide and create anxiety, and people have different ways of reacting to the current political climate. ”What would you do?” the show asks, in one of its many memorable songs and, despite the political climate being the underlying current of the show, Cabaret is about people. Their hopes, fears and – sometimes broken – dreams. The show is fun, grim, sexy, disturbing, bittersweet, and life affirming, all at the same time. It is about the choices people have to make to survive.
in cooperation with NORDISKA ApS/ DANSK TEATERFORLAG.
