Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill

The time is 1959, in a smoky bar in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday’s last performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, sometimes humorous, reminiscences that project a riveting portrait of this unforgettable music icon. Over the course of the evening, the audience gets a firsthand account of Billie’s life, her music, and the battles she’s fought throughout her career. This show is a powerful piece that will stay with you long after you’ve left the theater.

Note: Those with tickets to the original January run of the show can redeem them for the new dates. Remaining Season 35 Flex Passes will also be honored.
