Behold the Spiegeltent! Yes, the Spiegeltent's the thing this week, friend, as Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co. takes its brand of "Ballads, Boogies & Blues" to downtown Manhattan's South Street Seaport for a rare treat: an in-the-round show within a hundred-year-old traveling cabaret palace known as the Spiegeltent! Imported from Europe for a mere two months, the "tent" is a marvel of stained glass doors and inlaid wood floors, all under a canvas big top -- with an outdoor beer garden competing the setting. Naturally. And, after this month the Spiegeltent will be but a memory! THE SPIEGELTENT / THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st / South Street Seaport, Pier 17 in Manhattan / One BIG show at 6pm / With special guests Rosalie Morris and The Baby Maria! / $10 / / Spiegelly yours, Michael -
