The Jill & Julia (Sweeney) Show

I met Julia at an early TED conference years ago. We were so excited to meet, as we were both big fan girls of each other - I adore her one-woman shows so much. She's friggin' genius. We also found out that we lived just a couple of blocks apart. The following week (or month. I don't remember time lines anymore), I had a show at Largo and asked her if she wanted to come up and tell a couple of stories between songs. She was game. What ended up happening, was a kind of wondrous play on each other's songs and stories. We had such a good time - and folks seemed to like it - so we decided to make it a show. We even took it on the road a couple of times. My favorite show was our yearly New Years Eve gig at Space in Evanston. We started the show at 6;00, so folks could gee back home at 8:00. No one complained.

Working with Julia was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I hope one day we can get the band together.
