The show was inspired by the feeling and aesthetic of film noir, and was structured the same as “A Decadent Scandal” with the addition of more detailed vignettes between acts and regular opportunities for audience participation. These vignettes were structured so the performers could set up and “kitten” (stage manage) for each dancer’s solo. Dancers also started to interact with the audience more, and bring individuals on stage to be part of the vignettes. New dancers were cast from the DivaGirl Entertainment roster. Rehearsals were held for two hours on four separate occasions, working out of Carla Catherwood’s condo in Liberty Village. Anna held extra independent rehearsals for herself to develop group choreography. Dancers were able to learn the choreography quickly and put their solos together in decent time. While Anna felt the show didn't have the best promo material, it sold a decent amount of tickets and she was proud that she had produced and choreographed another show that had pretty good success. Unfortunately, Anna quickly noticed that the venue may not be a stable home for High Society Cabaret with a layout that wasn't accommodating to dance performances and an less than supportive response from the venue itself.
