    As German society was sliding toward the Nazis in the 1930s, its popular cabarets mixed decadent entertainment with controversial political themes, a combination mirrored in the musical “Cabaret” which opens Thursday [FEB. 16] at East Central University.

    The Tony Award-winning production will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday [FEB.18] in the Ataloa Theatre in the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Theatre. Because of suggestive musical numbers and risqué acts, “Cabaret” may not be appropriate for those under age 15.
