"Cabaret" (Music)

"Life is so not a cabaret."

The hook to this J. Kander and Fred Ebb song, the finale in the musical, proclaims that "life is a cabaret." This declaration is seen by some as an invitation to live in a fantasy world whenever reality becomes too harsh. It's hard to argue when a song encourages people to forget about their problems so they can socialize with friends and listen to music. Basically, pretend that life is one big musical theater. After Meg's humiliation at the Cabaret auditions, Veronica reminds us that this is so not the case.
