Cabaret

Cabaret is a form of entertainment featuring comedy, song, dance, and theatre, distinguished mainly by the performance venue - a restaurant or nightclub[?] with a stage for performances and the audience sitting around the tables watching the performance. The venue itself can also be called a "cabaret".

The term is a French word for coffee-tray, used in the Parisian bars and other places in which this genre was born (mainly the café-chantants[?]).

Famous cabarets include:


Cabaret is also the name of a well-known Broadway musical (see Cabaret (musical)[?]).
