Cabaret at RWA Bristol

Cabaret was released in 1972, directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minnelli as Sally Bowles and Michael York as Brian Roberts and Helmut Griem as Maximillian von Heune.


Set behind the background of the rising Nazi public acceptance and power in 1931’s Berlin, the film tales Cambridge University student Brian Roberts, brash and elaborate American Sally Bowles, and wealthy and powerful Maximillian von Heune, amongst other characters- gigolo- Fritz Wendel (Fritz Wepper) and heiress, Natalia Landauer (Marisa Berenson).


Cabaret is a film of debauchery, decadence and deviance.


Filled with stunning street-shots, dazzling musical numbers and incepts of provocative scenes, Cabaret is a cinematic treasure, that captures the conflicting attitudes of the era.


The original film has since been readapted into musicals on Broadway and at The West End, as well as remastered into a modern film.
