Athena McElrath here from McElrath Cabaret. I promised some changes to this blog in a recent post, and now I’d like to share them with you. Starting on Monday, January 23rd, we will give this new weekly post lineup a try for your enjoyment:
Mondays: Cabaret Soiree Linkup–If you have a musical (not burlesque) cabaret blog, you may link a recent post about a cabaret topic to this site. More details to come on Monday.
Tuesday: Series Posts–We will start a new selection of series related to cabaret, cabaret performance, cabaret marketing, and more.
Wednesday: Ask A Question–Here I will put a question to you, perhaps in the form of a poll, and this will be an opportunity for you to let us know what is on your mind concerning the world of cabaret, what is going on in your sphere of cabaret wherever you live, a new CD or DVD related to cabaret that you want to tell everyone about, and more.
Thursday: Featured Cabaret Blogs and Performers–Here I will feature some favorite cabaret blogs and performers in a post for each.
Friday: Cabaret Through Time–This will be a bit of a Cabaret Timeline, with the idea being that it will be a spot where historical cabaret is presented. The idea of the epochs of cabaret, with the 20-40s a time when solo performers ruled, then the 50-60s when nightclub entertainers came to the foreground, and then the lull in cabaret found in the 70s and the resurgence that occurred in the 80s.
I’d love some feedback on this idea–if you have a suggestion to make, please feel free to leave a comment below. We’d like to offer you entertaining and informative posts about all aspects of cabaret, so that you will be enticed (!) to visit regularly, and I’d like to try to build a cabaret community around this endeavor, so we have a place to come to talk about cabaret. I hope to also provide some special posts, perhaps with interviews, video and/or podcasts interspersed, depending upon how much I can learn and take in about producing all of this! This may evolve and change a bit over time, but we will give it a good try and see how it goes!
