The Show: Michael started working on the show in early 2018, and from an early stage Sarah was involved, co-arranging as well as advising on compositions. After writing a first, German version (back then called 'Fabulett - Dein Kabarett Braucht Dich'), which was workshopped with German audiences in 2019, 'Fabulett 1933' has been developed. It had its first performances in August 2021 at London's Canal Café Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe and received multiple 4* reviews.
