Transcript 'pprii by T. G. Pretender Now playing every Tuesday through Sunday nightly until September at Houston's Shamrock Hilton Hotel's Cabaret Theatre is Cabaret. The show features Pamela Whitten as Sally Bowles and Greg Ryan in the part of the American writer Clifford Brad- shaw. Roxie Lucas is the Cabaret Emcee (that's right, a girl plays the part, and quite well I might add). The majority of the readers have more than likely seen the film version of Canaret with Liza Minnelli and Michael York. Well, the stage production is somewhat different than the film version. Bob Fosse, who directed the film, elaborated on the play somewhat to make the story lengthy and more enticing to the audience. But the play itself is no less enticing or entertaining. The setting of Cabaret is Berlin around 1931 just before the rise of Hitler's Third Reich. Sally Bowles is an English girl lost in the fast pace of bright lights and applause from singing in the Cabaret. Suddenly along comes American Clifford Brad- shaw that meets Sally at the Cabaret and falls in love with her. They soon take up residence in a rooming house that is inhabited by prostitutes and a lonely old woman who is in love with a marvelous old Jewish fruit vendor. As you are probably telling yourself, that's not how the movie was. As I pointed out, the film was a variation from the original book by Joe Masteroff. The original play produced off Broadway was titled I am a Camera, later moving to Broadway as the play Cabaret and then onto film under the same name. The play is being presented and produced by Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) is a marvelous spectacle to witness. I have to admit that the first portion of the production was disappointing, but the cast soon got warmed up and took hold of things bringing the show off quite smoothly. Each scene in the production moves from the noisy smoke filled Kit Kat Klub where Sally sings to the rooming house where Sally and Clifford have to face the trials and tribulations of what is called life. Bruce Lumpkin directed the . show and was quite impressive with a tough assignment. The entire production was done so that the audience could sit back and relax while watching the show. I would highly reccommend TUTS production of Cabaret to every- RHODA BLABUTT One More Time! Well, gang, I can't say enough about all that lovely mail that has poured into the office for little old me. Your response to Rhoda is truly gratifying. For those of you who haven't made it to the Bourbon Pub and Parade Disco, well, you're really missing something. The D.J. booth is plexiglass and suspended from the ceiling. And lately if the action on the dance floor is not enough for you, check up in the sound booth. I understand that the show up there is really HOT. A hot flash came in just the other day about the upcoming Mr. Gay America Pageant in Dallas. It seems that some other individuals decided to have their own Mr. Contest in Florida after plans were announced for the big event. But it seems that the "new" show even went as far as to steal art work, advertising, etc. It should have an interesting outcome. The Dallas MCC recently had another benefit show to help raise funds. Just what the funds are for isn't quite sure. Tangier in Houston closed its doors this past week with a surprising announcement that it was turning into a straight club again. Well, not exactly straight, but a swingers club - you know where straights go and do what they want to do in the first place and then go home sanctified and purified! And for those of you in Houston and that know about the northside bar the Horn-It, well things have quieted down out there quite a bit. I reported a few weeks ago about the "show" during the real show they were having a few weeks ago. Girls were fighting right and left, and it had been reported that a gun had been pulled. The report of the gun turns out to be erroneous and all rumor. The statement about a knife being pulled I can't say anything different a- bout, as I personally saw a knif^ in someone's hand. Things have quieted down out there in the country and all does appear safe for those with the spirit of adventure. And for those of you who have written in and asked if I have it in for T. G. Pretender and Mel, well, the answer is really no. After all, I have to work and socialize with the both of them, but when the dirt comes in, it comes in mostly from you the readers. It's just that some readers are more vocal than others and love to write. I mean that it is easy to pick up on idle bar talk and some folks really make a one liner into four paragraphs. It's all in the eyes of the reader!!! Page 4
