About the Show

A contemporary musical based on the play "I Am a Camera" by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Story: An aspiring writer named Cliff Bradshaw has traveled to Berlin in search of inspiration when happens upon Sally Bowles at a cabaret called the Kit Kat Klub. She ends up moving in with him in a boarding house run by Fräulein Schneider and her suitor, Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit-shop owner. As the Nazis grow stronger, everything is thrown into disarray.
