Famed director/choreographer Bob Fosse's Oscar-winning musical drama is now on Blu-ray book in a special 40th anniversary edition, remastered for the first time in over 20 years with over 40 pages of insightful photos/text and a new documentary, Cabaret: The Musical That Changed Musicals. Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey won Academy Awards for this lively story of an eccentric American entertainer in Berlin's decadent Kit Kat Club, circa 1931, living a carefree life and falling in love as the Nazis begin to gain power, threatening their hedonistic existence – and their very lives. The Blu-ray also features the vintage documentaries Cabaret: A Legend in the Making and The Recreation of an Era, a multi-part memory gallery and more.
