this email was just posted on one of the egroups i'm on. i thought it was brilliant. sides, i love chicago and cabaret:
Apparently Fred Ebb, lyricist of "Cabaret" and Chicago" has died. I am
reminded me of something that happened to me in New York.
Once I was waiting for a light on Sheridan Square behind two punk
with chartreuse hair and a pink T shirt, the other with pink hair and a
chartreuse shirt--and one was comforting the other--saying, "Remember,
life is a
cabaret"--and the other stopped sniveling and said, "Yeah. Yeah" and
bravely--and then asked, "By the way, what IS a cabaret?"
