A tremendous collection of talent and performances, 31 May 2001
Author: Paul Klenk (paulklenk) from New York, NY

This rare video has until now been selling for $100, used, if you can find a copy. Now we can own it for a song, and watch it anytime!

See this! It is a wonderful evening, and you'll never forget the thunderous ovation the ladies receive in "Beautiful Girls."
