Irish Film Institute -BOB FOSSE: CABARET


Director: Bob Fosse

124 mins, USA, 1972, Digital

Liza Minnelli shines as the life and soul of every party, Sally Bowles, who sings her heart out in Berlin’s Kit Kat Klub cabaret, while trying to become a star. After welcoming new housemate Brian Roberts (Michael York), she joins him in getting to know his wealthy language students, and one in particular to whom they are both drawn. Taking elements from the original novel, play and Broadway hit (including Joel Grey as Master of Ceremonies), Fosse opted for a realistic style, keeping musical numbers on the cabaret stage, and gradually unveiling the Nazi party’s ascension to power.

Screening as part of our Bob Fosse season, June 9th to 30th.
