COME TO the Cabaret this week as the multi-award-winning musical returns to the Grand Theatre in Leeds. John Partridge, Karen Lily Hayworth and Anita Harris star in Kander and Ebb’s show set in Berlin during the rise of the Nazis.

Cabaret tells the tale of a young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, and his relationship with English cabaret performer Sally Bowles. It features some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre, including Money Makes the World Go Round, Two Ladies, Maybe This Time and Cabaret.

Partridge, well-known to TV audiences as EastEnders’ Christian Clarke, a West End veteran, plays the enigmatic Emcee. Hayworth, who received critical acclaim for her betrayal of Cilla Black in Cilla the Musical, will star as Sally Bowles, while Fraulein Schneider will be played by singer and screen icon Anita Harris.

Since its Broadway premiere in 1966 - and the famous movie version starring Liza Minnelli and Oscar-winner Joel Grey - Cabaret has won many stage and screen awards, including eight Oscars, seven Baftas and 13 Tonys.

Rufus Norris’ current production has enjoyed two smash hit West End runs and has picked up two Olivier Awards. Norris is director of the National Theatre and a multi-award-winning theatre and opera director. His productions include Les Liaisons Dangereuses which received five Tony Award nominations on Broadway, and Festen which was on both the West End and Broadway.

Cabaret runs from Tuesday to Saturday, March 3-7. Visit or call 0844 848 2700 to book tickets.
