“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill”

By Lanie Robertson
Directed by Danielle Drakes
Musical Direction by Wil Lewis III
November 2–19, 2017

The time is 1959. The place is Emerson’s Bar and Grill, a seedy little jazz club in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday's final performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers including “God Bless the Child”, “My Man” and “Strange Fruit” are interlaced with salty, often humorous, reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.

“Hurts and exhilarates in just the right proportions." - New York Magazine
