Here is the adorable Dody Goodman, in a MAC Awards tribute to this talented entertainer.  Don’t miss the clip of she and Carol Channing dancing the Charleston together! (They appeared together on Broadway in Lorelei.)  You might remember her from the television show Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman or as the secretary in the movie musical Grease in scenes with Eve Arden.  There is a Wikipedia entry for Ms. Goodman, as well as one from IMDB.  Information about her work in nightclubs in the early years when she performed are in James Gavin’s Intimate Nights.  Enjoy!


Wednesday is the day of the week when we at McElrath Cabaret will post a cabaret question for the consideration of our readers.


The questions will have something to do with cabaret, in all its many aspects. The question may take the form of a poll, to which we encourage you to respond, or it may be a question posed to the cabaret community, to which you can leave your response in the comments section at the bottom of the page.


We encourage you to send us any cabaret question that you have that you would like us to pose to the group! You can leave a question in the comments section below, or you can email it to us at kjandathenacabaret [at] Just fill in the [at] with the @ symbol—we need to foil the spam bots, don’cha know.


Today’s question is this: What is the age of your audience?


I’m very curious to see who populates your audience at your cabaret shows.  For us, our audience members tend to be women and men over 60 years old, in general.  I’m wondering if this is the case nation-wide or just something that is particular to our area.  This might be because a more mature audience remembers a lot of the material that we perform when it first came out.  There could be many other factors, such as ability to pay covers and minimums as well as preference in music styles and the venues where we perform, all of which tend to cater to an audience of years.

So what is the age of your audience?  Let us know down in the comments section!  


I truly look forward to your joining the conversation with your comments! We value each of our readers very much, and hope to entertain you and give you a place to come and learn more about cabaret.
