I went to see my friend, Robin Fine perform one of her newer poems last night at show called “Beast Women”, an All-Female Performance Variety Revue serving as a platform to showcase the best female talent in Chicago. The show was started in 2007 by Jilly Kewl and Michelle Power.
I have been to their show before but last night’s show blew me away. Robin Fine’s poem almost had me in tears because of how beautiful it was. I got goosebumps when a belly dancer came out in the middle of her poem to dance to her words.
Another fabulous Chicago talent who was a real treat to see last night was Roberta Miles. Her poem about getting old had me in stitches from laughing so hard. I love her clever humor and how she can captivate an audience.
I highly recommend this show. It is a true Chicago treasure.
