Takeaway from a play

Recently had been to a play from the house/makers of Chicago. The play was Cabaret, a.k.a Welcome to Berlin.

What a lovely experience to watch the play in the mecca of plays in the European continent, plays, musicals are regular activities for the locals.

Wayne Sleep as Emcee and Samantha Barks as Sally Bowles don't disappoint nor the great choreography and dazzling outfits; Since its Broadway premiere in 1966 and the famous movie version with Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey, Cabaret has won a staggering number of stage and screen awards including 8 Oscars, 7 BAFTAs and 13 Tonys.

Some of the ratings
'***** Genius' - The Independant
'**** Wonderful' - The Express
'**** Superb' - The Financial Times
'**** Sensational' - The Mail on Sunday
'**** Stunning' - The Sunday Express

The main takeaway (from a song) from this play and the main reason I started writing this is as follows,

The sun may shine and the moon may set,
You will learn to settle for what you get.
