Summary "Features chapters on Jean Ross and Christopher Isherwood--the real people behind the singular characters of Sally Bowles and Clifford Bradshaw/Brian Roberts. Also includes background information on the original source material, Isherwood's Goodbye to Berlin stories; delves into the stories behind the figure of the outlandish Emcee as well as the actors who played him, from Joel Grey to Alan Cumming; studies the famous musical score by John Kander and Fred Ebb; and looks into the burlesque roots of director Bob Fosse in his native Chicago. Throughout the book, connections and associations to Cabaret are explored by looking at such diverse topics as the first cabarets in Paris, Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, the Dada movement, early Berlin cabarets during the Weimar Republic, German expressionism, the Bauhaus, Marlene Dietrich and The Blue Angel, David Bowie's many German influences, and the present and future of modern cabaret."-- Back cover.
