Mike and Jenny finally get to dive into Mike's love of musicals with one of the best regarded of the form, Bob Fosse's 1972 adaptation of Cabaret. They discuss the many differences between the stage show and the film, the impact of using music as a reflection of the plot rather than propelling it, and the unfortunate familiarity of how 1931 Berlin compares to 2018 America.
