This article focuses on 2003 Cabaret Convention. Whereas, in previous years, organizer Donald Smith slotted eight performers in the program's first half and eight in the second, he's now slotting six in each half for most of the program. During the first three nights, there was the same mix of highlights, lowlights, and medium lights as in the previous 13 years of boite-entertainer grazing. The second night—billed as "Happy Birthday, Julie!"—featured the birthday girl herself, performer Julie Wilson, in a spellbinding version of "But Beautiful." Wilson did an unusual amount of shouting, which lead many people to speculate if it was good for her voice.
