"Based on director Bob Fosse's own extravagant life, this vibrant and spectacular film follows Fosse's alter ego. Joe Gideon in his relentless pursuit of sex, drugs and self-destruction. His womanizing both supports and debilitates him as he juggles his mistress, ex-wife and beloved daughter. Hovering over all of his excess is an angel. The proceedings are set amid rapturous dream sequences, lavish production numbers and fabulous sets"--Container

"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."--Container
