Love at the End of Everything 

Kander and Ebb's musical Cabaret is popular with young people because it's about them. Based on Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories, the raucous show depicts the goings-on at the Kit Kat Club, a debauched cabaret in barely pre-WWII Berlin, where nineteen-year-old star Sally Bowles dallies romantically with Cliff Bradshaw, a terminally broke American writer, among several other lovers. A tale of sex and passion in hard times starring poor people with little hope other than love, is a perfect match for the college crowd. Especially now, what with the bleak economic market graduates face. The Webster University Conservatory of Theatre Arts presents a story they're living with — hell, we're all living with — at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 29 through May 3) at the Browning Theater in the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-968-7128). Tickets are a very affordable $6 to $12, so go and lose yourself for a little while in a place where anything can happen, at least for a little while.
