Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill gives a glimpse inside Billie Holiday’s final concert approximately four months before the singer died. This intimate evening is filled with some of the most inspiring and moving songs ever written and explores the turbulent but extraordinary life of the legendary Jazz singer as she struggles with racism, abuse and addiction. Performing iconic songs like “God Bless the Child” and “Strange Fruit,” as well as several other hits, this soulful play with music is filled with personal stories full of regret and hope.
