More tickets will be released in September with performances due to begin in November.

The revival of the Kander and Ebb classic will see one of London’s most famous theatres, the Playhouse, being transformed into The Kit Kat Club with an in-the-round auditorium and newly reimagined spaces.

It’s 1930s Berlin. It’s 2020s London. It’s then, it’s now. Who knows how long it will reside here? Enjoy the party! The party at the end of the world.

People are being advised to come early to get a proper "Wilkommen, Bienvenue, welcome", and fully immerse themselves in the experience. People will be able to explore the Club with drinks, food (including a three-course meal), and entertainment before the show starts, which can only get started once you enter the Club.

The show will be directed by Rebecca Frecknall (Summer and Smoke, The Duchess of Malfi, Three Sisters), and will of course feature music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and a book by Joe Masteroff. Cabaret is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions and Underbelly.

Featuring classic musical songs such as ‘Wilkommen’, ‘Mein Herr’, ‘Maybe This Time', and ‘Cabaret’, it’s one of the world’s most successful musicals of all time

Performances for the hit musical are set to begin on 15 November. You can get tickets here.
