Political Cabaret - Hard Right

Should I create a Hard Right Cabaret, using the unedited words of  Republican politicians ?
Check out my latest Youtube video and vote!

Cabaret seems to be on the upswing here in NYC. So what is cabaret exactly? Here's a Wikopedia definition:

Cabaret is a form of entertainment featuring music, comedy, song, dance, recitation or drama. It is mainly distinguished by the performance venue (also called a cabaret), such as in a restaurant, pub or nightclub with a stage for performances. The audience usually sits at tables, often dining or drinking. Performances are usually introduced by a master of ceremonies or emcee (MC). The entertainment is often (but not always) oriented towards adult audiences.
Cabaret also sometimes refers to a Mediterranean-style brothel – a bar with tables and women who mingle with and entertain the clientele. Traditionally these establishments can also feature some form of stage entertainment, often singers and dancers or burlesque entertainers.

I will add to this that the Cabaret that existed in Berlin in the 1920's was quite political.

A Paranormal Miracle

Rescheduled "PARANORMAL ACTIVITIES" Monday, November 5 at 8 PM
Christ and Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church
120 West 69th Street
Between Broadway & Columbus Avenues

It appeared that Hurricane Sandy had assassinated my new Satyrical Suite for Chamber Orchestra,
Hard Right. With movements titled Hymn to Hypocrisy, Waltzing Mitt-ilda, Trickle down Tango and Tea Party Trot, was the cancellation of Monday's Premiere at the DiMenna Centre due to bad Republican Karma?

But now, Paranormal Activities, the Halloween concert of The Pit Stop Players, has - rather appropriately - risen from the dead. Thanks to Josh Rosenblum. You are all invited.

Addendum: add to my previous blog concerning New York Cabaret spots
The Cornelia Street Cafe

Hope to see you at the show!
