Success or Spin?

I’m looking forward to the opening night of the 2009 Adelaide Cabaret Festival as much as anyone but as the media is saturated with Cabaret stats my eyebrow is raised at the comparison offered by Douglas Gautier, CEO of the Adelaide Festival Centre.

Gautier has proffered the information that ticket sales are up 50% 15% on the same time last year, but neglects to mention that he ordered that the 2008 festival be slashed in length.

I’m keen for him to report how the sales stand up against sales figures for the 2007 festival.

I do hope that this year’s Cabaret Festival continues to build upon the success that has been established over the previous eight years.

I’ll be at opening night this Friday June 5. See you there.
