My overall impression

Ruby Besler takes us back to a time when girls with “no prospects” were taught to live by their wits, which often included the world’s oldest profession.
Switching back and forth, Anastasia Barnes embodies the role of her domineering mother, and Ruby herself, while singing various numbers of delightfully raunchy tunes, along
with a wistful torch song.
Her sexy corseted back up singer/dancers play various roles brilliantly, an accompanist who could follow you through a blizzard, and the conceit of the chapters of her life delineating the change of scenes is a brilliant one.
Add lots of red velvet and beautiful sparkling costumes from the period, and you’ll step back into the 40’s for a delicious hour.
