How was your experience?
The entertainment was quite good, though we expected more varied acts, like some slapstick or magic. The vintage movies were a treat. The obscure Vaudeville songs fun. Klein could use a wise-cracking tap-dancing male companion to bounce off of, to counteract some of the Betty Boop sweetness. More audacious sassiness would have been fun; it was a little too clean. We came with school children, so especially did not care for the inordinately long, boring 50 minute intermission between movies and music, used to shamelessly plug the new CD and vintage-style polaroid pix one could buy (despite the free corndogs and hot pretzels, which were a nice Coney Island touch). Glad we went, but once is enough.
