  • 'What Would You Do?'
  • The reprise of 'Married.'
    • Let's face it, the enitre Fraulein Schiender and Herr Schutlz relationship is the saddest part of the show
  • 'I Don't Care Much.'
  • The title song. Natasha Richardson's tragic death does not help.
    • This troper agrees with all of the above and would like to add her personal experience from seeing the play in London in 2008. The ending of the play can be changed in each production (for example, in the 1998 Sam Mendes version, the MC takes off his cabaret costume to reveal a concentration camp uniform, with a yellow star denoting he is a Jew and a pink triangle denoting he is gay). In the production she saw, the MC sings the last reprise of "Willkommen" as the men and women of the Kit Kat Klub slowly file out behind him, naked. When the MC says his last line, he takes off his robe, beneath which he is completely naked, and joins his coworkers at the back of the stage. They huddle together as the sounds of a gas chamber play. This troper was absolutely bawling.
    • This troper saw a version where the MC was joined by the rest of the cast who were sporting torn costumes and well rendered bruises. At the end the entire cast, minus a couple of the Nazis, were herded into a portion of the backdrop which opened and the sounds of a fright train were played. The look of sheer terror on their faces, plus Sally's attempt to sing the title song in the most heartrending effort to convince herself she's going to be alright, makes her cry just thinking about it.
  • This Troper's school production featured two of the Cabaret boys singing the original "Tomorrow Belongs to Me," with Nazis slowly marching in towards them. The fact that they were played by an actual gay couple didn't help even a little bit.
