This chapter focuses on Nina's return to the Village Gate on February 22 and how she had kept the opening night audience waiting for an hour. Nina groused in her dressing room about the financial arrangement she had with owner Art D'Lugoff and a crowd not big enough to suit her. She finally came out and did an uneven forty-five-minute set. Though she included her biggest hits, Nina offered only snippets, breaking off a couple of them in favor of talking to the audience. “I must get my money,” she told them. “I will get my money.” Nina was supposed to perform two shows, but she did only one. Her most committed fans chalked it up to opening night kinks.

Keywords:   Nina, Village Gate, opening night audience, dressing room, financial arrangement, Art D'Lugoff
