Cara Delevingne announces stage debut in Cabaret musical

The queer model and actress will be taking on the role of Sally Bowles beside Luke Treadaway

English model and actress Cara Delevingne is set to return to the West End for her stage debut in the Olivier award-winning musical, Cabaret. Playing the role of Sally Bowles beside Luke Treadaway playing Emcee, Cara has expressed her overwhelming excitement to be a part of a fantastic production that takes place so close to home. Cabaret has earned awards for Best Musical Revival, Best Director and Best Sound Design amongst others. 

The ongoing production will be performed at the Kit Kat Club at the Playhouse Theatre in London and will be featuring Cara from 11 March to 1 June, with tickets currently available to purchase online at ATG tickets and ranging from £30 to £325 depending on your choice of seating. 

The performance space boasts an intentionally themed aesthetic crafted to resemble Weimar Germany in which Cabaret is set, transporting the show’s audience deeper into an atmosphere of late 1920s nostalgia and remembrance. The performance begins the moment you step into the theatre, with the Kit Kat Club offering great food and drinks, and always encouraging its guests to arrive early and explore the scene. 

Based on the 1939 novel Goodbye To Berlin by Christopher Isherwood and the 1951 play adaption, I Am a Camera by John Van Druten, Cabaret is an extravagant musical that includes music written by John Kander, with some of the most well-known songs being Cabaret, Tomorrow Belongs To Me, and Willkommen. 

The role of Sally Bowles, soon to be played by Cara, is based upon a 19-year-old cabaret singer whose character in Cabaret is believed to have inspired Truman Capote’s femme fatale in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. The charm and magnetism of the spirit of Sally Bowles have since been passed on through various stories, plays, movies and musicals since her first inception.
