From November 15th!

I'm in awe of my incredible creative team who have come together to create a bold new production as well as a new Kit Kat Club', a bespoke home where we can truly embrace and unlock the world of Cabaret for a new audience

Rebecca Frecknall, director

Why See Cabaret?



Eddie Redmayne is your Emcee

Don't Tell Mama!

A bold and daring new production of the Kander and Ebb classic, Cabaret is set to open its doors this winter. This immersive new take will immerse audiences in Berlin's seedier side at the Playhouse Theatre, which will be specially adapted for the show. So put down the knitting, the book, and the broom and prepare to join Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley for a night out you won't soon forget!

Given that London is home to several world-class cabaret venues and acts, we can't wait to see what director Rebecca Frecknall has in store for us. Furthermore, the production will see theatre titan Ambassador Theatre Group Productions work alongside the champion of fringe and festival theatre, Underbelly. So it's almost certain that the stellar cast, bespoke venue, and iconic songs will be just one part of what makes this exciting new production a West End hit.

What is Cabaret about?

A doomed romance in a city that dances on the edge of oblivion, Cabaret is one of the true classics of musical theatre, weaving together strands of debauchery and terror to capture a moment in time, that despite the warning, is ever in danger of being repeated. Featuring Kander and Ebb's unforgettable music, Cabaret is the story of an American writer and an entrancing showgirl who find themselves in Weimar era Berlin, as the shadow of fascism grows in the country. From inside the decadence of the Kit Kat club, they and their fellow artists, creatives, freaks, and weirdos attempt to eek every last bit of freedom before the Nazis take over.
