While Baltimore strippers were still celebrating their recent exemption from state nudity laws, attorneys for 11 Block clubs stood last week before the city zoning board appealing the revocation of their licenses because of prostitution convictions.The dichotomy of the two events illustrates the tangled condition of city and state adult entertainment laws in an era when governments across the nation are trying to make their cities more attractive by cracking down on open sex.Like many U.S. cities, Baltimore has spent the past nine years trying to restrict adult entertainment in hopes of cleaning up seedy areas of the city and luring residents back to downtown.

"If you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere." "Life is a cabaret." When you hear these phrases, the music sounds in your head. That's one indication of how well songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb integrate music and lyrics. And, when they're writing for Broadway, as they have in such shows as "Chicago," "Cabaret" and "Kiss of the Spider Woman," they weave their songs so neatly into the fabric of the shows, they often seem inseparable. Nine years ago, however, Scott Ellis, Susan Stroman and David Thompson discovered new and witty contexts for Kander and Ebb's greatest hits, as well as some of their lesser-known gems.

Kurt Weill, who was born 100 years ago and died 50 years ago, left an extraordinary mark on the 20th century. Keenly aware of how the darkest impulses of human nature were being unleashed in the early decades of the century, Weill used music -- and piercing texts by the likes of Bertold Brecht -- as a means of analysis and protest. From full-scale satire and irony in such music-theater classics as "The Three-Penny Opera" and "Mahagonny" to intimate cabaret songs, Weill's creations have a uniquely affecting power.

Who knew school could be so much fun? At "Cabaret for Kids," formally clad guests toured the Children's Guild Baltimore school, finding new adventures around every corner. In one hallway, an a capella group from Johns Hopkins University, the All Nighters, serenaded. Around the corner, a tarot card reader awaited. Buffets lined some corridors, while a magician roamed others. And this was only the warm-up. The big show was yet to come: a cabaret performance by guild faculty members and supporters.

Beware of flying crockery. I'm pleased to report that no members of the audience were accidentally beheaded during a recent performance of Le Cabaret de Carmen. That would be carrying the quest for authenticity a bit too far. But at times, it was a close call. Most singers portraying the Gypsy siren Carmen use castanets when they dance. Sophie-Louise Roland uses shards of a plate that she obligingly shatters on stage. At one point, Roland flung her arm so vehemently over her head that a heavy metal bracelet flew off her arm and ricocheted against the wall.
