SAN FRANCISCO THEATER EXAMINER
...With its understated colors and George Grosz and Alphonse Mucha inspired Art Deco paintings and embellishments, Kim A.Tolman's set design succinctly captures the Weimar aestetic.
SAN FRANCISCO WEEKLY
“No good is sitting alone in your room, come hear the music play!” This legendary landmark musical turns Weimar Berlin of 1931 into a dark and sexually charged haven of decadence where its extraordinary and morally ambiguous inhabitants are determined to keep upappearances as the real world-outside the comfortable sanctuary of the cabaret- prepares forthenightmarish chaos of war. It is here that Sally Bowles performs nightly at the infamous Kit-Kat Klub. “Its divine decadence darling!”
