I chose to see the show Cabaret and ended up being quite entertained throughout the entire play I did not know anything about this production and I think I enjoyed it more for that reason The first thing I will discuss in this paper is the plot This play shows us the lives of many different people during the period right before the First World War The play is set in Berlin a place full of activity and talk of the Germans and the Jews The cabaret is a place where people can go in order to forget the worries of the world Here they can separate themselves from the uproar and the hate that is beginning to surround them in this city The plot includes the lives and feelings of certain characters in order to portray to the audience the variety of opinions people from different backgrounds possessed during this era During the play we become familiar with each character and begin to understand their situations We see the artistic truth in this play as we watch the characters react to their surroundings One example of this is when Herr Schultz gets engaged to Fraulein Schneider At first they are both so happy and in love they are ready to spend the remainder of their lives together At their engagement party Ernst Ludwig tells Fraulein Schneider that her soon-to-be husband is Jewish Ernst explains how this will affect Fraulein Schneider when the Nazis take over Berlin Rather than follow her heart Fraulein Schneider lets society get the best of her and she calls off the wedding with Schultz This shows the audience what a huge impact the Germans were starting to have on the rest of the world Soon these people would loose much of their freedom The cabaret gave them a chance to ignore all the terrible things that were about to happen in their country The cabaret had no rules
