Gee, only $300 for 2 people in the cheap seats.
No thanks.

I thought you meant this... Randi Brooks

Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

Watching that video was either the best 3:40 of my life or the worst 3:40 of my life -- I cannot decide!

Probably but get used to this kind of stuff.

It seems everyone is combining "Dressed to the Nines" with a cabaret-like music-comedy group and is tossing in a Belly Dancer and a juggler or gymnast. Its on the theory that the audience will accept a few loser acts but too many places seem to book only loser acts.

Seattle and Portland, Oregon were doing it right for awhile with Vagabond Opera and associated groups, though quite a few venues couldn't get pyrotechnic licenses for the firebrands used by the Belly Dancers.

But as it spread geographically things got toned down sexually and toned down intellectually and now instead of Bohemian Steampunk Cabaret eclecticism with cheese for the weekend Hippie crowd its just plain five lousy acts thrown together at once.

But if you go, for that kind of money, I hope you enjoy it.
