"Life is a cabaret, old chum, Come to the cabaret."
Underneath this famous lyric is the true nature of cabaret: a forum for an entertainer to share his/her viewpoints on life and the stories that make it so rich. Some have said it is like a recital using popular song. It is an art unto itself nevertheless. A little patter, a lot of song take the audience on a journey through the eyes of the artist.
