In the 1920s, Germany’s kabarett was in full swing. Inspired by the pioneers of French cabaret, German performers enlivened the tantalizing theatrics with gallows humor. Spielpalast Cabaret taps into this time-tested tradition and transports audiences back in time with a nod to the groundbreaking performance style. Accompanied by a six-piece jazz ensemble, 11 dancers and a troupe of satirists bring dancing, drama and dadaist antics to the stage. Equal parts burlesque and vaudeville, this sassy show features Max the madcap MC, who pilots an evening of political satire, saucy cigar girls, sex positivism and more. The heat gets turned up for Sunday’s “scandalous” show.

Price: $28-30.
