There are two sides to every story, and when the Big, Bad Wolf takes the stand in Piggsylvania’s Trial of the Century, he finally get his say. But can a lone wolf get a fair trial in a corrupt piggy court? And will anyone believe that all the “huffing and puffing” nonsense was just a cover –up for a simple story about a sneeze and a cup of sugar? Enter the jury box and decide the fate of Big ’n’ Bad in this hysterical musical adaptation of the hit children’s book.l

"That's just politics, and what does that have to do with us?"

This tony Award-winning musical tells the story of Berlin's infamous Kit Kat Klub, whre the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd--enticing them to leave their troubles outside. Featuring such memorable songs as "Willkommen," "Money," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Maybe This Time," Cabaret's powerful message to follow your heart when the world loses its way remains remarkably relevant.

"One for the ages."
--New York Post

"Delivers a timely jolt."
--The Boston Globe
