Report by Jackie Larson
I'm just now getting back to work and seeing the
messages about Lucy at the Factory. Just want to add my two dinars.
After a nice dinner with Cindy T., Marie, Angie, another
Cindy and some nice gal who's name I've forgotten, Marie could you
remind me? We got in line to see Lucy. We waited about about 3.5 hours
for her to come on stage. But it was fun watching the sea of "who's yo
Mama" shirts dance and have a good time.
A bunch of us staked our claim right in front of the
stage and didn't budge for the night. When Lucy came out the crowd went
wild and Lucy started singing "sisters" and all the Xena fans just
howled and cheered. Lucy extended the microphone so the Xena fans who
were all singing along could be heard!!!
Lucy introduced her next song and she made it her own.
When Lucy went down on her knees in front of Cindy T. I thought I would
have to catch her, but to her credit she kept her legs and didn't hit
After a quick thank you for coming, which was almost
lost in the commotion, and a round of balloons and confetti Lucy was
I have been reading that some folks are upset at the 6
minutes of performance. Well, 6 minutes is 6 minutes of Lucy, up close
and personal no matter how you look at it. Both the
STAGE and the
REAF productions were only one song
and people came from farther away from me to see her.
I'm in Chicago. So we should really know what we are
getting into before we go. There was no false advertising, the show was
advertised as 2 or maybe 3 songs. We were all disappointed that Lucy
didn't stop to talk to us, but the crowd was thick and the night was
late. Maybe next time cause I wll be there!!
We are all drawn to travel great distances because of
Lucy, but in the end it is the people that make the trip and the time
I'll keep traveling to see Lucy, but it is my Xena
friends that keep me coming back.
