Rufus Norris’ Cabaret starring Will Young, who reprises his award-winning performance as the Emcee, and Louise Redknapp, making her stage debut as Sally Bowles, is breaking records at the box office during its UK tour.

Playing to packed houses Cabaret is proving a hit with audiences across the country as sales of the landmark musical are exceeding expectations.

At Theatre Royal Brighton the show was, officially, the highest grossing single week-long musical in the theatre’s history, and at Malvern Theatre, the show’s sales have smashed records as the highest grossing single week-long musical or play.

Cabaret features show-stopping choreography, dazzling costumes and some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre including Money Makes The World Go Round, Two Ladies, Maybe This Time and the title song.

The production turns Weimar Berlin of 1931 into a sassy, sizzling haven of decadence, and at its dark heart is the legendary and notorious Emcee, who performs nightly at the infamous Kit Kat Klub.

The cast also includes Susan Penhaligon as Fraulein Schneider. Joining her are: Basienka Blake, Linal Haft, Charles Hagerty and Nick Tizzard.

The company is completed by Maria Garrett, Sophie Hirst, Luke Jackson, Katrina Kleve, Jordan Livesey, Liam Marcellino, Alicia Mencia, Jack Mitchell, Hannah Nicholas, Helen Siveter and Matthew Wesley.
