Hoof 'n Horn presents CABARET

Cabaret explores the dark and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. While the Master of Ceremonies assures the audience that they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret, Cliff, a young American writer, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered Jewish fruit seller.

The Friday, October 18th performance will be audio described and CART (speech to text translation) services will be available for that show. Audio Description is a descriptive narration and commentary of key visual elements of live theatre to enhance the enjoyment by consumers who are blind or have low vision. Live captioning is a speech-to-text interpreting service for anyone who needs communication access which is displayed on a screen adjacent to the stage.

Please Note: There will be no late seating.

Content warning: This show contains sexual and provocative situations, drug and alcohol use, and violence, as well as portrayals of antisemitic language and Nazi imagery.
