The Berlin Stories is inhabited by a wealth ofcharacters: the unforgettable Sally Bowles, whose misadventures in thedemimonde were popularized on the American stage and screen by JulieHarris in I Am A Camera and Liza Minnelli in Cabaret ;Mr. Norris, the improbable old debauchee mysteriously caught betweenthe Nazis and the Communists; plump Fräulein Schroeder, who thinks anoperation to reduce the scale of her Büste might relieve her heartpalpitations; and the distinguished and doomed Jewish family, theLandauers.
