What is it about cabaret that distinguishes itself from other forms of live musical entertainment?
I always felt this art form fit me the best. It gives you the chance to become a character and draw people in.
Do you have a structured routine during this pandemic

What did you think of cabaret
It was ME! Believe me, I sang it all- disco, pop, you name it.
But with material by these genius writers, I never connected more to an art form than I did to this music.
What do you like least?
Being on a diet!
If everything gets back on track, Angela will be doing a Vocal Master Class at this year's Provincetown Cabaret Festival And performing at the final show at the end of the week.
Now, go and do something nice for someone without expecting anything in return!

Hi again, Richard Skipper!
I wanted to thank you again for such a fabulous interview with Lesley Ann Warren. I've been a huge fan ever since she played Cinderella back in 1965 and hearing her speak live was truly a thrill. You're a wonderful host (something that I've known for many years now) and I look forward to more of these podcasts. I wouldn't mind hearing an interview with Hugh Jackman! How about it, Richard?
