Gustave’s diary entry Sunday, 13 June

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

Hello, Gustave here once again. I realize there has been a long gap in this journal so I will remind you in case you forgot: I am a singer of the cabaret. And with me is my friend, Nhar.

Last we wrote to you, we were opening a show at Triskelion Arts in Williamsburg in February. That show was an excellent success, but unfortunately we had an accident with a forklift just as we were about to leave New York, and so we were detained for a few months. Luckily, we lived, and also luckily, we are back in tip-top shape just in time for the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, where we are performing our show, Cabaret Terrarium, from July 15 to July 24.

Please don’t tell the other cities this, but Winnipeg is our favorite city in Canada. You have many fine places to visit. The Forks. The Legislative. Osborne Village. Also in every stall in every parking lot you have an electrical outlet that says “for block heaters only.” If you don’t know what this means, then you live somewhere warm and it’s better if you just stay not knowing in this case. What you don’t know cannot disturb you.

We have not been to Winnipeg in seven years, and we want to tell the people of Winnipeg that we are so happy to be back. We will see you soon.

Your friends,
Gustave and Nhar
