Black Friday in a Jersey City Mall

I’m not really a blogger and don’t usually post things unrelated to upcoming performances, but today I’m sharing this video of a favorite cabaret song of mine. “Santa Ain’t Black” premiered at the New York Performing Arts Library in 2012 and became an unexpected holiday favorite in cabarets around town and elsewhere. It’s gotten so I can mark the passage of time by its recurrence. So here’s my annual reminder that conspicuous consumption, rudeness, and racism are gross, brought to you by the incomparable John-Andrew Morrison. Happy Holidays, and stay tuned for more regular news as it happens!
