Please join us for a special afternoon – the first reading of “A Great Big Diva” – a forthcoming theatrical one woman show featuring Chicago’s own Lynne Jordan who has been thrilling audiences around the world for 25 years including sold out performances at City Winery venues in Chicago, New York and Atlanta.
An Ohio native, Lynne leads her own 12-piece band “Lynne Jordan & the Shivers” entertaining at top venues in the city and around the country, some of Chicago’s biggest gala events, as well as concerts in Europe and South America. Drawing upon her theater background whilst a student at Northwestern University, she incorporates a healthy dose of humor in her work, but she can break your heart in the next moment with her interpretation of a song.
For two decades, Lynne has dreamed of performing her own one woman show incorporating the stories and music of her rich life and bringing together all of her formidable talents to the stage….and now under the guidance of Chicago composer and producer, Ira Antelis, Lynne together with decorated LA based playwright and co-writer, Andrew Barrett, is bringing this dream to fruition with the first reading on the stage of City Winery. Following this reading, the show will be refined and completed and brought to a stage in Chicago over the next year. We expect nothing less than a theatrical hit. This endearing performance will represent a unique opportunity to get an exclusive first look at this compelling material and music that will become “A Great Big Diva.”
“A Great Big Diva” takes us on a journey through Lynne's personal and professional ups and downs as she tries to understand, "What makes a diva?" This passionate and uplifting work weaves her most requested and popular songs with some personal favorites that will move you to laughter and tears. It will be an experience she hopes stays with you forever and perhaps shows you a path to finding your own inner diva!
