The time is the mid '70s, the place a city in upstate New York. John, a playwright, returns to his family's house, bringing with him a new play which he has written about them. His purpose is to obtain their permission to proceed with production, but his wealthy, very proper parents are cautious from the outset. For them the theatre is personified by the gracious, comforting era of the Lunts and Ina Claire, and they are disturbed by the bluntness of modern plays. And there is also John's sister Nina to contend with, although her reservations have to do with the fact that John has given her character such a minor role. Their confrontation takes place during the ritual of the cocktail hour, and as the martinis flow so do the recriminations and revelations, both funny and poignant.

Brothers Randy and Sherman couldn't be more opposite. Randy is gay and flamboyant, while Sherman is up–tight, and sees life in black and white. Their Aunt Becky's mental lapses and multiple personalities have caused them to find safer arrangements for her. Randy realizes that he and Sherman are the last of their line. One of them MUST have a child to carry on the family name. Randy is physically unable; so, he coerces Sherman into fulfilling this duty. However, Sherman has a rare physical abnormality and he will require chemical assistance. Enter Alice Perkins. She wants a baby, and the brothers need one. The result is hilarious chaos!

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to an end, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild–mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama", and "Two Ladies."
