A Gift of Love
At the risk of sounding extremely sappy, the holidays, to me, are about family and friends, giving and gratitude, and ultimately Love. Hopefully everyone is touched by the undeniable, unsurpassed feeling of love often in their lives, but the Holidays seem to open our hearts even a little wider than usual. It’s so uplifting to get caught up in the spirit of this time of year, with family get-togethers and visits with old friends or a cozy night in watching a Christmas Classic. I think that is one of the appeals of Cabaret during the holidays. When you step through the door, it can be like stepping through the Silver Screen into “A Miracle on 34th Street” or “It’s a Wonderful Life”.
People are engulfed by the nostalgia, the mood, and start to smile as they are filled with the warmth of their own fond memories. I love watching it happen. Sometimes it is as if they are in another world, completely enchanted by the vintage party dresses and gowns; the men’s robes, smoking jackets and scarves; items of such elegance and style that the imagination is immediately inspired.From here the magic begins, the discovery of the perfect gift. Cabaret carries nothing solely practical.
Cabaret is about the special, the unique, and the treasured! I look forward to seeing this happen over and over again: the girlfriend sneaking back without her boyfriend to grab the cufflinks, the husband slipping us his credit card and saying “quick, quick, please before she sees!” and the mother proudly smiling as she pictures her daughter’s expression when she opens the gift. Every year we get to see incredibly thoughtful givers, whole-hearted givers, and great surprises- in-the-making! We love this time to celebrate the magic of Family, the one we have and the one we make, the close of one year and the beginning of a new one.We cherish the chance to be a part of your giving and getting this year and every year. Thank you!
