A little bit about the show:

Cabaret is a musical set in 1931 Berlin, as the Nazis rise to power. The seedy Kit Kat Klub is at the heart of the story, which revolves around a young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, and his relationship with 32-year-old English cabaret performer, Sally Bowles. Sally Bowles was most famously played by Liza Minnelli in the 1972 American musical film.

A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner, Fräulein Schneider, and her elderly suitor, Herr Schultz – a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub. The club serves as a metaphor for ominous political developments in late Weimar Germany.
