Cabaret AOK

Editor, VARIETY:

Martin Schaeffer’s story on the cabaret business (VARIETY, Feb. 18) paints a bleak (if realistic) picture of putting on a cabaret show.

The entire month of March has been designated “Cabaret Month” by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC), which I represent. During the month, dozens of acts will be performing at 25 MAC-member clubs, culminating in the 5th Annual MAC Awards at Symphony Space on April 1. There is definitely life left in the old art form yet – despite some of its drawbacks.
