Stage musical

  • The reprise of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me," when just about all of the guests at the engagement party begin singing along. As Fraulein Schneider later says, "I can no longer dismiss the Nazi Party. Now they are my friends and neighbors."
  • The ending to the 2012 London revival has the Emcee, Sally and the Kit Kat Klub boys and girls being herded into gas chambers by Ernst Ludwig. Because clearly the original ending wasn't enough of a downer.

  • The movie version of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" starts off disarmingly pleasant, but swiftly becomes horrifying when the audience of common, ordinary people begin standing up and singing along and become swept up in the nationalist fervor, and it becomes obvious to the audience that these ordinary people are the grassroots support that allowed the Nazis to rise.
    • Even scarier near the end of the scene it cuts to the Emcee who looks up toward the viewer then smiles a eerie smile and nods his head slowly at the viewer as if telling the viewer yes they can still control the people in any way and we can control you too to join us! The make up makes him even more creepy! Shudder.
