The Tomo Suru Players’ “Cabaret” turns XY into the Kit Kat Klub.

As if its Wednesday night piano bar hasn’t already made XY theatre-queen central, there’s even more for all you Broadway Babies to love.

Tomo Suro Players is transforming the West End watering Hole into an underground 1930s Berlin boîte with its production of the iconic Kander and Ebb musical, Cabaret, starting Thursday night.

Set in the “divine decadence” of Weimar Germany — a true gay paradise before the rise of Hitler and the Nazis — Cabaret follows the career of British stage performer Sally Bowles and her gay bestie, American author, Cliff Bradshaw. From the stage of the Kit Kat Klub to their ramshackle rooming house, the two negotiate the end of one era and the rise of a new, terrifying one.

Plus, it’s a chance for true musical fans to hear “Don’t Tell Mama,” which was cut from the 1972 film version starring Liza with a Z.

It’s “Perfectly Marvelous.”
