A TRIBUTE TO A WOMAN WHO SHAPED SO MUCH MORE THAN JAZZ AND BLUES.
As the 1950s come to a close, the famous Billie Holiday puts on a show in a small bar in Philadelphia. Unbeknownst to the audience, they will witness one of the last performances of her extraordinary life. Full of show stopping numbers like “God Bless the Child,” “Strange Fruit,” and “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” Lady Day shares her loves and losses in this award-winning musical fresh from its Broadway revival. Pull up a chair for an intimate evening that’s up close and personal, with one of the greatest jazz/blues vocalists of all time!
