Free Entertainment Tip – November 2018
I’ve mentioned before that cabaret shows are great in terms of price and of time and informality of the setting. The rooms can be beautiful. The word “Cabaret” is often misunderstood because of what the space in the Broadway musical “Cabaret” presented.
Don’t Tell Mama!, in which I’ve been presenting my cabaret series, “It’s Just a Number!” is friendly and and comfortable. The staff is delightful and they’re there to please you. The Booking Manager, Sidney Myer, who we like to call ‘Mr. Cabaret!” is one of the mot talented performers and kindest people you could hope to meet. Prepared snacks and drinks are available during the show and there’s a lovely restaurant in which you can dine before or after most shows. There is usually a two-drink minimum in a cabaret, which can be juice or soda if you don’t want to drink liquor (and remember that almost everyone gets health benefits from red wine.) If you happen to be visiting New York it would pay for you to look up the clubs in town. You can see a Broadway show or two and then have a less expensive and very personal evening in a “cabaret’. You can sometimes meet very well known performers and NY celebrities in the rooms and in the Piano Bars that are attached to many of these rooms. They usually have no minimum and many of the entertainers are excellent.
Please note that my next show is on Thursday December 13that 7 PM at Don’t Tell Mama! at 343 West 46thStreet.
Check out all the rooms in town. I meet visitors on the street and so many tell me how wonderfully surprised they were by the friendly and very professional talent they saw and befriended in the cabaret rooms.
