Unique Selling Point

"One of my great loves is indeed Cabaret. I love the immediacy, the access to the crowd, the close, coloured stage-lights, the subtle clink of champagne glasses, the expectation of humour and social comment, and the slightly-smoky, late-night intimacy which is only possible in a boîte de nuit."
