A Caberet Day
Dreams are like this. Sometimes we wait and wait for that dream to come true and then we give up. And usually right before it happens. I seem to be blessed with the pollyanna gene and always think…ok this will work out. This dream of the mountains started in 2005 and here it is 2011 and we are here and the closest we have every been to my mountains.
Last nite son and I went to our first Caberet show…another dream of mine that came true last nite. It was so much fun and we had such a good time. Impressionists or female impersonators are so cool. The music was loud and good, lots of lights, colored and strobe lights and great entertainment. They even gave us a bottle of champagne. And my favorite…son got his picture taken with Titania LaVey .
And how these performers walked on these 7 inch stiletto heels, I will never know. I would kill myself. LOL
We really enjoyed seeing their performances. Of course there was Titania LaVey, and there was Ericha De Lynn, Lady Amore and Envy Amore. Each had a different style about them.
Titania LaVey above is just a classic artist and does Mae West and other old stars. The old movie stars come to life. I loved the Mae West Impersonation especially with her huge feathered hat and boa. VERY classy dresses and accessories and performing…down to the rhinestone necklaces depicting glamour of old days.
Here is Titania LaVey strutting down the walk.

Above is Ericha De Lynn, Lady Amore and Envy Amore
Ericha De Lynn is a very dramatic performer and you can feel the emotion in the performance. All of Ericha’s performances were choreographed in the greatest detail. Son loved the eye dramatization and said it reminded him of Babylon and the women on that show.
Lady Amore had such energy and was beautifully made up and costumed. I am not sure how they moved around on those high high stilletto heels but they did. Lady had that soft feminism and smilng appearance that you could not help but fall in love with Lady.
Envy Amore is a tall slender performer and if I could move dancing like Envy does, I would need traction for about a month. Envy has some great modern dance moves. Envy is the quieter of the performers but don’t judge her performance by that. Envy has all the dance moves down pat.
Impressionism or impersonation is an art form often overlooked but a wonderful and entertaining art form. I watched these performers through this show and let me tell you, it is not an easy job. They take their performing seriously and put a lot of love and effort into what they are doing. If you ever get a chance to see a show or to see these performers who come from the Pueblo/Denver areas, please do. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Whether it is taking you back to the old grandeur of yesteryear like Titania LaVey does, or giving you a performance that seems to tell a story like Ericha De Lynn, or sharing such joy and energy and making you smile like Lady Amore, or making you wish you were as young as Envy Amore or had the dance moves….you will enjoy it all.
I may be paying for it today as the sitting threw me into severe pain and will be laying here on this bed for a few days, but it was worth the experience. It was worth all the time it takes for me to get ready, putting on all the gear I have to wear just so I can go somewhere. We may be disabled, but we find a way and Titania LaVey made sure I had a seat up close and with arms to help me.
