What is the difference between a stripper and a cabaret dancer? About 30 lbs. At least, so goes the stand-up joke. Annnyway, there is so much free stuff going on today and tomorrow it seemed difficult to choose based on pure merit, so I took into consideration a little thing called personal growth. I haven’t spent much time in DUMBO, I have not been to the new Galapagos since its move, and I have not been exposed to much cabaret, especially free cabaret. It reminds me of another joke I heard recently about people who use the FREENyc condoms; they don’t care enough to pay a little bit of money to NOT get AIDS. Well, I’m paying nothing, but I’m hoping I don’t NOT get something. Although, little birds have told me that even cheap cabaret, let alone free, is a harbinger for obese things to come, I’m optimistic because this is Galapagos, where evolution is on display. Evolution and boobs.
Here is this week’s line-up:
Lisa Natoli – resident aerialist
Soonji cutting hair
Patrick terry, mentalist
Jenny Rocha and her painted ladies
Jan Manke, Berlin aerialist
Damn, sounds like more variety than burlesque!
