You say the President can't make a decision, public confidence in government is at rock bottom, and the left and right are at each other's throats? Welcome to Germany after World War I, as reflected in the extraordinary songs and sketches that filled the nights in Berlin's cabarets — razor sharp, wickedly funny, irreverent, and bawdy. A powerful and compelling musical work in its Boston premiere, from the works and words of Wilhelm Bendow, Bertolt Brecht, Hanns Eisler, Werner Finck, Fritz Grunbaum, Friedrich Hollaender, Walter Mehring, Rudolf Nelson, Kurt Robitschek, Marcellus Schiffer, Mischa Spoliansky, Konrad Tom, Kurt Tucholsky, Karl Valentin, and David Weber.
