Tonight’s the Night!

Life was simpler then.


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 sell well. Of course I am not so sure. I never am. Folks say: “you always sell out!” “You always pack the house!” I never count on that. I push, push, push the show until I am crazy. But you never know …

Dress is laid out. Jewelry is chosen. (where’s my purple necklace?) My make-up artist Brayzill stands ready at 5pm.

We rehearsed last night and I feel good about the show. I always feel good when I sing Nina’s music.

Here’s hoping for a near sell-out. Or at least 200 people. The venue holds 300.

OY! My nerves.
