Kit Kat Club chronicles: The top songs from Cabaret in London

Madhushree

Immersed in the atmosphere of early 1930s Berlin, the musical Cabaret has wowed audiences in the West End since it opened at the Kit Kat Club in London. Adapted from Christopher Isherwood's 1939 novel Goodbye to Berlin, the production offers a journey through the Weimar Republic era. Cabaret unfolds the intertwined lives of American writer Cliff Bradshaw and English cabaret singer Sally Bowles within the bohemian Kit Kat Club. Yet, the spectre of Nazism looms ominously, casting a shadow over their hedonistic haven. 

Cabaret's compelling plot is accompanied by a bold soundtrack. Read on to find out the top five songs from this superb production.

Willkommen

Opening the show with flair, Willkommen serves as the Emcee's multilingual invitation to the Kit Kat Club, establishing an unforgettable tone for the performance.

Don't Tell Mama

Introducing Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Don't Tell Mama gives audiences a first glimpse of the bold English singer, delivering a flirtatious number recounting her past debaucheries.

Mein Herr

In Mein Herr, Sally Bowles takes centre stage in a bold and brassy performance, narrating the story of an overbearing man attempting to control his woman. It powerfully showcases Sally's character and her steadfast refusal to be subdued.

Maybe This Time

A jewel in musical theatre, Maybe This Time is a poignant and hopeful ballad, quickly becoming a fan favourite for its beauty and longing.

Money 

With satirical flair, Money comments on the societal and economic conditions of the time, infusing the show with humour and a memorable tune.

Honourable mentions

While the following songs didn't make it to the top five, they deserve a mention as they enhance the soundtrack. So What? reveals the darker side of interwar Berlin, reflecting the perilous nature of the times. Perfectly Marvellous showcases the chemistry between Sally Bowles and Cliff Bradshaw, adding depth to the characters' relationship. Serving as the title track, Cabaret stands as a powerful anthem encapsulating the spirit of the entire musical.
