Perhaps you’ve heard about my exciting venture this summer, my one woman cabaret show “Why Cyn Sings Jazz: The Vocal Evolution of Cynthia Simmons”. You mean you haven’t heard about it yet? You can check it out at the Tulsa PAC website.
WHY CYN SINGS JAZZ
Charles E. Norman Theatre
PRESENTED BY: Spinning Plates Productions
In her first cabaret performance, Oklahoma City native and Tulsa transplant Cynthia Simmons shares the circuitous musical journey that led her to being a devotee and deliverer of the Great American Songbook. Featuring music from such artists as Aretha Franklin, Patti Austin, Barbra Streisand and Whitney Houston, Simmons’ unique style and effervescent tone will delight audiences of all ages.
I’m so excited to be working with Rebecca Ungerman’s Spinning Plates Productions and the show promises to be a winner. It won’t just be only jazz but will answer the question so many of you have asked me over the last few years: “How is that you ended up singing jazz?” or some variation thereof. There’s never been a short answer to that question and now I can answer in an entire show. So the show will feature songs from the artists who have influenced me over the years. There have been so many that it is truly impossible to pick them ALL but I’ve highlighted the big ones. The show promises to be a good one.
When my show is over all you need to do is go get a drink (or two!) and come back and watch Rebecca Ungerman present to you the fabulous Queen Cleofis in “Queen Cleofis Comes Home!” Yes, her cabaret show is right after mine! Buy tickets to both; make an evening of it!
