When: Thu, 07/19/2018 @7:00 PM
Where: Corktown Common Park 155 Bayview Ave, Toronto
Presented by TOPS with the Goethe-Institut
What: CABARET (USA 1972, 124 min) musical drama directed by Bob Fosse, with Liza Minelli, Michael York, Helmut Griem, Joel Grey, and others.
1930s Berlin was a place and era of stark contrast. While the Nazis gradually rose to power and threatened anyone who didn't fit in, bohemians and dreamers flocked to cabaret theatres that embraced difference and hedonism – a lost universe most recently resurrected by Tom Tykwer's Babylon Berlin. By now a classic. A masterwork collaboration between Bob Fosse, Liza Minnelli, and Joel Grey, Cabaret likewise invites us to the fabulous “Kit Kat Klub”, an underground haven where the fantastical, queer, and macabre are celebrated.
This is a free event. Please visit the Goethe-Institut Toronto's website for the trailer and more details.
