Rose was admittedly and visibly sick, so her energy was down. She is, though, clearly talented and charming.
To JALC: Rose spoke of this having been her cabaret debut. Shouldn't a neophyte work her way up to such an august venue? She did a nice job. but shouldn't such an event knock one's socks off?
