Cabaret (15)

18 Nov
19 Nov 2019

Directed by

Bob Fosse


An iconic, incredibly stylish study of the hedonism and sexual ambiguity of pre-war Berlin, Cabaret was a huge, multi-Oscar winning hit for choreographer and director Bob Fosse in 1972 and made Liza Minnelli (who won Best Actress) a star. Set in 1931 Berlin during the Weimar Republic, against a backdrop of increasing anti-Semitism and the growing Nazi Party. It follows Brian (Michael York), a new British arrival in the city, as he befriends Sally Bowles (Minnelli), a talented performer at the risqué ´Kit Kat Klub’. A vibrant and incredibly singular musical, with its focus on the dark heart of 30s Berlin centred around a fabulous performance from Minnelli.

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
