We are on our way out to the theatre tonight, so today’s post will be more in form of a video tribute to one of my favorite cabaret entertainers, Bobby Short.  There is more information about Bobby Short on a previous post, including a great deal of information from Bobby Shorts autobiography, as well as a brief website for Mr. Short, which includes many additional links.  There is a Facebook page as well.
