»Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!«
The scene is set for another fabulous evening in Berlin's infamous Kit-Kat Club in the early 1930s. This is where Sally Bowles and Clifford Bradshaw first meet and eventually fall in love. Unfortunately this is to be no simple love story, with the dark foreboding powers of the emerging National Socialist Movement looming over them ...

John Kander's iconic musical premiered on Broadway in New York in 1966 and was made into an Oscar-winning film in 1972, starring Liza Minelli in the role of Sally Bowles. Iris Limbarth now brings the magic of the Kit-Kat Club to the Wiesbaden stage, with Levi Hammer conducting the Kit-Kat Band.
