Inside the Kit Kat Klub of 1931 Berlin, starry-eyed singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) and an impish emcee (Joel Grey) sound the call to decadent fun, while outside a certain political party grows into a brutal force. Boasting a score by the legendary songwriting partnership of John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret won eight Oscars including awards for Minneli, Grey and director Bob Fosse, who shaped a triumph of style and substance. Come to this cabaret, old chum. You'll never want to leave.

If you're a fan of the TV series, "Schitt's Creek" and you haven't seen this musical what exactly are you doing with your life?

Rated PG 13. A very good story about an American EX PAT actress-singer in 1931 living in Berlin when the Nazi's were rising to power. SALLY befriends an Englishman and also makes the rounds in Berlin bistro-caberet society. Highly enjoyble with songs and dance.

Set against the back drop of pre World War II Germany, young American Sally Bowles struggles for stardom while the Nazi Party continues to grow in support, slowing exerting their influence into German society.

A worthy candidate as one of the best musicals of the later 20th century, Best Actress winner Liza Minnelli does a wonderful job as Sally Bowles. The mixture of wartime and metaphorical stage acts are entertainingly handled by Joel Grey, winner of the Best Supporting Oscar, and Ms. Minnelli.

Set in Berlin, Germany (1931) under the growing presence of Nazi domination - 1972's "Cabaret" was a musical-drama whose tangled story of unfulfilling personal dramas was set in and around the infamous Kit Kat Klub.

For the most part, I did enjoy watching the 12 musical numbers that were quite often imaginatively staged and energetically performed before a live audience at the Kit Kat Klub.

But, alas! - Along with the good moments, "Cabaret" also had an equal share of not-so-good moments, as well.

And, with that said - Unfortunately, I felt that actress, Liza Minnelli was not an easy person to warm up to as the flaky, ambitious, gold-digging character of nightclub singer, Sally Bowles.

Hello, darlings! - 1972's "Cabaret" has both its fair share of good moments, as well as its not-so-good moments, too. But - With that said - This musical-comedy-drama is certainly worth a view.

I was very pleased to see that "Cabaret" was on Netflix, and so I watched it! It is a great movie, and Joel Grey and Liza Minnelli totally and completely deserved their Oscar wins, and Bob Fosse also deserved his Best Director win!

Liza Minnelli is absolutely amazing as Sally Bowles in this film! Not to mention Joel Grey reprises his role as the MC. Having seen the Broadway version, however, I'm not happy with all the changes they made. It seems that musicals made into movies from that era always had that problem - they changed the story line to "On the Town" and "Carousel" as well. Sigh.....

GREAT 1972 film which won 8 Academy Awards - and deserved them. Lisa Minelli is particularly enchanting and does some fine dancing. Joel Grey is terrific as impish MC at interesting setting at 1931 Berlin's Kit Kat Klub.
