A Great Big Diva!: Never too late to make that dream happen!

17th October 2017 | 0 Comments

I am finally fulfilling a dream I’ve had for decades: writing & performing my own one woman show. It will be funny (of course) and it’s a musical but I will also share a couple moments of heartache as well. I am collaborating with a monstrously talented writer in L.A. named Andrew Barrett and it’s [...]


The Solo Show. Nothing in life worth having comes easy.

10th October 2017 | 0 Comments

Planning for this one woman show is a somewhat daunting experience. But, it beats me talking about it for decades and doing nothing to make it happen. Dreams remain dreams because making the reality happen is so much harder! But it’s worth it. There are so many elements to prepare before we even get down [...]


Random Thoughts from A GREAT BIG DIVA

Random Thoughts from A GREAT BIG DIVA: It’s so scary to produce an original piece of work. People have asked me: “Why are you doing this? (My one woman show)” I have only one answer: Because I have to. I am compelled to do this work. I have tried to ignore it for years – [...]


Tonight’s the Night!

7th November 2016 | 0 Comments

It’s Monday and in ten hours I will be hitting the stage with the return of my Nina Simone show at City Winery Chicago. I have NO idea how many tickets have sold. I checked a week and a half ago and the low sales frightened me. The venue seemed secure that the show will [...]


No More Fussing About this Election. Only Love today.

I am not spending another minute fussing about this election. Today, I am going to spread love and laughter and continue building excitement for my show tomorrow night at City Winery Chicago.

I first performed my Nina Simone tribute in January 2013 at City Winery Chicago. We sold out. It was my first performance there and my first ticketed sold out show. and now after sold out shows in NYC and Atlanta, I am bringing it back home. The show has evolved. I have evolved as a [...]


My Words for the New Year 2016 and for 2015: Verklempt & Gratitude!

3rd January 2016 | 0 Comments

Verklempt. Definition: Verklempt is a Yiddish word that means “overcome with emotion.” Pronounced “fer-klempt,” people use it when they are so emotional that they’re on the verge of tears or at a loss for words due to their emotional state. I am Verklempt. I’ve been trying to compose a New Year’s message but I am [...]

Little Gray Dots.

21st December 2015 | 2 Comments

I should explain. The little gray dots are the seats sold for my Lynne Jordan & the Shivers Concert at City Winery Chicago. The other ones – the little brown dots are the unsold seats and there’s quite a few of them. I try not to go to that page every minute though it is [...]


The New Star Wars Movie. (The Force Awakens) Not Just Another Star Wars Film To Me.

16th December 2015 | 0 Comments

The FORCE AWAKENS. It certainly has – in all of us! I spent the better part of the wee hours of this morning posting first reviews, videos and photos from Star Wars like some crazed adolescent fanboy! The opening of this movie may be the one thing that excites me ALMOST as much as my [...]
