BASIE: THE SHOW MUST GO ON

steve-winwood_12658297866551Schools, businesses and government offices throughout the Red Bank region are closed, and even the New York Times sheepishly informed its subscribers not to expect today’s newspaper before tomorrow.

But the Steve Winwood show at the Count Basie Theatre is still on for tonight.

Huh?

That’s right: even with forecasts of severe weather” and warnings to motorists that they stay off the road, the show is going on. Or was, as of 2:45p.

“We have a policy that when the artist shows up, unless the artist cancels it, the show must go on,” says theater spokeswoman Diana St. John.

Winwood’s bus has been parked outside the theater since about 10a, so he’s there. And assuming he performs, there will be no refunds available for unused tickets to the nearly sold-out show.

The theater is advising ticketholders to give themselves plenty of time to get to the show and of course, to drive safely.

Let’s hope that with Winwood’s “Can’t Find My Way Home” isn’t prophetic for them afterwards.
