Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill

Written by Lanie Robertson
Directed by Andre Ernotte
With Danny Holgate, David Jackson, Lonette McKee, Rudy Stevenson, Bambi Herrera
The time is 1959. The place is a seedy 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, often humorous reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.
