Am Glock­en­turm. Tickets T: 01806.570070. S Olympias­ta­dion + bus. Off Map At once a cel­e­bra­tion and con­dem­na­tion of the city’s late-Weimar era, the mu­si­cal Cabaret show­cases the end of Berlin’s wildest and most sto­ried epoch. The orig­i­nal 1966 Broad­way pro­duc­tion was such a hit that it spawned a film star­ring Liza Min­nelli in her most fa­mous – and Oscar-win­ning – role, as as­pir­ing per­former Sally Bowles. Based on Christo­pher Ish­er­wood’s novel fol­lows the free-spir­ited Bowles as she drags Berlin new­comer Brian Roberts through one scheme and an­tic af­ter an­other, all set to the tune of a rau­cous sound­track, in­clud­ing such fa­vorites as and, of course, Tipi am Kan­zler­amt’s nos­tal­gic sup­per- club set­ting brings the show to life as few other venues could. From 13 July. Tipi am Kan­zler­amt. www.tipi-am- kan­zler­amt.de
