One of the things we try to do as cabaret artists is put our own spin on music. Making it hopefully very much our own. At times it may push the envelope too much in the name of indulgence and in those cases, the composer is probably turning over in his grave. This is one of those cases!
It is apparently from Bruce Jay Friedman's off-Broadway play "Steambath" circa the late 1970s. It sounds as if a sort of No Exit where the likes of Bill Bixby and Valerie Perrine are destined to exile in a steambath. Already sounds over the deep end huh? This tele-number was from the network airing and is baffling even 40 years later. I would love to know who the two older character actors are.
