It seems like a zillion years ago that I’ve seen Cabaret in Berlin for the first time. It was long before I started my own stage career as a burlesque artist and probably one of the reasons why my very self can now be seen on Europe’s stages with the burlesque team of the Teaserettes. Almost a quarter million visitors have seen the musical in Berlin and now, Cabaret is back: even bigger, even more beautiful and even more wicked. The location TIPI AM KLANZLERAMT presents the wildly celebrated cabaret show of Madonna choreograph Vincent Paterson from the ‚Bar jeder Vernunft“ and garantuees an amazing journey into the Berlin of the roaring 20s, when the world just took a rest from troubles and struggles. Fashion was revealing, the night clubs were legendary, the fear of the upcoming Nazi terror was yet to be manifested and life was a cabaret.
The band as an acoustic highlight, the dance performances were just to the point and all in all it was one of Berlin’s best musicals ever. Those who miss the frivolous journey of Cabaret will miss a musical burlesque firework on stage which could not be more charming and better matching. The two wonderful tents have already presented some highlights of Berlin, but Cabaret definitely belongs to the real „must-go’“, especially when you love the fashion, the music and the lifestyle of the twenties. Life is a cabaret… and Berlin always worth a trip!

Based on true events and real lives, CABARET portrays the experiences of the English writer Christopher Isherwood, who lived in the Berlin district of Schöneberg from 1929 to 1933, making real life the source of this highly sensual theatrical experience.
The story of the carefree nightclub-singer Sally Bowles in the glittering yet shady milieu of the Golden Twenties immortalised the city of Berlin as the city of historical fractures, caught between glamour and the gutter, between dreams and despair.
This production of CABARET is the work of director and star choreographer Vincent Paterson, who has developed choreographies for Madonna and Michael Jackson as well as for Lars von Trier’s Dancer in The Dark.
