Abstract

My first introduction to the musical Cabaret came to me as it did to most people. Over the radio and television came a bright lilting tune that beckoned its listeners to drop their everyday, hum-drum experiences, and find a new and more exciting way of life. This, the lyrics promised, could be found close at hand in a friendly cabaret. The melody was exciting and the idea was more than inviting, so within a matter of weeks a new song was added to the list of standards.
