May 25 - June 4 | Charles Farnsworth Amphitheater | Altadena, CA
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. This iconic Kander and Ebb musical written by Joe Masteroff is based off the play by John Van Druten and 'The Berlin Stories' of Christopher Isherwood. It tells the tale of two love stories and the impact society and the Nazi's rise to power has on their relationships. Politics and society can change so quickly, but so many detrimental aspects remain if we are complacent and don't shine a light.
Altadena Music Theatre returns to the Charles Farnsworth Amphitheater this May following their inaugural production of "Hair" this past September which swept audiences away. You can expect another stunning musical adventure in the open air amphitheater at Charles Farnsworth Park in the foothills of Altadena May 25th - June 4th. This will be an evening to remember.
