Posted Wed Oct 10, 2012 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The classic 1972 musical is getting a Blu-ray digibook release this February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has revealed 'Cabaret: 40th Anniversary Edition' on Blu-ray on February 5.

Flamboyant and eccentric American entertainer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) sings in Berlin's decadent Kit Kat Club, even as Nazism rises in Germany in 1931. She falls in love with a British language teacher (Michael York) – whom she shares with a homosexual German baron (Helmut Griem). But Sally's insular, carefree, tolerant and fragile cabaret world is about to be crushed under the boot of the Nazis as Berlin becomes a trap from which Sally's German friends will not escape..

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will come housed in a 40-page digibook and supplements will include Audio Commentary by Stephen Tropiano; Cabaret: The Musical That Changed Musicals New Featurette; Cabaret: A Legend in the Making; The Recreation of an Era; Kit Kat Klub Memory Galleries; and Theatrical Trailer.
