So it goes that you live and work in the big city. Instead of wiling away endless hours in front of the TV screen as a form of entertainment to aid and abet rest and recuperation, would it not have been better to venture out of doors into the cool, crisp night that wraps around you as you traipse the city’s sidewalks for your weekend fix of entertainment. Owing to the accumulative price of going out over the weekend in what may still rankle as one of the world’s most expensive cities to live and play in, many working to middle class New Yorkers may choose to stay indoors, thank you very much.
Or just go down to the nearby mall for more of the same old, same old. Oh, how boring! Oh, how tedious! But perhaps understandable. Deplorable how so many folks can empty their pockets in a single night. And when you add it all up, it can be quite expensive. And what is supposedly meant to be the main event of the night, the eight o’ clock show, live or on the silver screen, might turn out to be a little bit disappointing.
Nothing like what the newspaper critics’ raved about. Just goes to show that you cannot appeal to everyone’s tastes and whims and fancies all of the time. New York city cabaret time, however, could prove to be the antidote you’ve been looking for. Variety is the main event. One live act after the next, each and every one never quite the same as the other, so the audience is never fidgeting. Ticket prices may also include a full-on three course meal, with a complimentary drink.
Some successful cabaret revues do that sort of thing.
