I think it's a wonderful experience, particularly if you are younger, because you can use all of this stuff you learn in cabaret. One of the reasons I love cabaret is the freedom. It's absolutely marvelous. It's great... that real freedom of being able to do anything you want. You can do five minutes on pantyhose.
Back then, we wore our own clothes. There were no stylists. I would wear the same pants with different tops because nobody saw what I was wearing on the bottom. Tops! Tops! Tops! And yes, I wore wigs! So don't ask me! And Betty White was nude!
My musical director, Mark Cherry, is the most wonderful person who ever lived on God's good green Earth. He's my director, he does the arrangements. Really, he does everything - including certain janitorial chores!
