Inspired by the goth drag queen Eve who performs at Midnight Cabaret, Adam decides to change overnight from geek to chic.

Songs About Jane propelled the band into the mainstream, but the album was not an immediate hit. "Harder to Breathe" became a radio staple soon followed by the omnipresent "This Love," whose steamy video (featuring frontman Levine and a barely clothed girlfriend) wooed the TV-watching crowds at MTV. Songs About Jane finally entered the Billboard Top Ten in August 2004, more than two years after the album's release, and follow-up singles like "She Will Be Loved" and "Sunday Morning" helped the album move over 2.7 million copies by year's end.

Few musicals can claim to capture the mood of a historical period as well as the 1972 classic Cabaret. Liza Minnelli's unforgettable portrayal of singer Sally Bowles and the film's stylish recreation of the era have become defining images of Weimar Berlin. In this documentary, actor Alan Cumming explores the truths behind the fiction. He meets many of those closely involved with the original film, including Liza Minnelli, and talks to cabaret artists, among them acclaimed performer Ute Lemper. Alan explores the origins of the Cabaret story in the writings of Christopher Isherwood and uncovers the story of the real life Sally Bowles, a woman very different from her fictional counterpart. He talks to the composer of Cabaret about the inspiration for the film's most famous songs and discovers the stories of the original composers and performers, among them Marlene Dietrich. Finally, Alan reveals the tragic fate of many of the cabaret artists at the hands of the Nazis.

Het Leids Cabaret Festival is 25 jaar geleden opgezet door Harry Kies, als activiteit binnen een studentenvereniging. Om met name het maatschappelijk geëngageerde cabaret te stimuleren. Het succes was zo groot dat werd besloten om er een jaarlijks vervolg aan te geven. Bij een nieuwe generatie cabaretiers bleek behoefte aan een gedegen behartiging van niet alleen zakelijke, maar ook inhoudelijke belangen. Daaruit is het impresariaat Harry Kies Theaterprodukties ontstaan. De ruime ervaring die het in de afgelopen vijfentwintig jaar heeft opgebouwd, wordt graag gedeeld met (beginnende) cabaretiers en theatermakers. Harry Kies Theaterprodukties is er ontzettend trots op dat veel ex-delnemers het Leids Cabaret Festival nog steeds zo'n warm hart toedragen dat ze nagenoeg allemaal aanwezig zijn, op het toneel of in de zaal, om de liefde voor theater te delen met het publiek.
