TIPI AM KANZLERAMT presents:
Welcome to the Kit Kat Club right next to the Chancellor’s office! The TIPI AM KANZLERAMT becomes a cabaret, hosting the world-famous musical about life, passion and despair in Berlin under the darkening skies of approaching fascism.
Based on true events and real lives, CABARET portrays the experiences of the English writer Christopher Isherwood, who lived in the Berlin district of Schöneberg from 1929 to 1933, making real life the source of this highly sensual theatrical experience.
The story of the carefree nightclub-singer Sally Bowles in the glittering yet shady milieu of the Golden Twenties immortalised the city of Berlin as the city of historical fractures, caught between glamour and the gutter, between dreams and despair.
This production of CABARET is the work of director and star choreographer Vincent Paterson, who has developed choreographies for Madonna and Michael Jackson as well as for Lars von Trier's Dancer in The Dark.
Please note that the dialogues are in German language.

Life is a musical – the most impressive advert for Berlin there has ever been.
Risqué, funny, brilliant! The musical ‘Cabaret’, after Christopher Isherwood, is back with a bang!

Berlin says willkommen as Cabaret comes home!
This ‘Cabaret’ is worth the journey.
Free and breezy.
