About Lady's Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill

Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill

By Lanie Robertson 
Directed by Spiro Veloudos 


This Off-Broadway hit features the soulful music of blues legend Billie Holiday, voiced through a dramatic cabaret act. During one of her final performances, she intertwines songs (such as “God Bless the Child” and “Strange Fruit”) with stories of her life, wrestling with both her past and her addiction to heroin. It soon becomes clear that music is a force that has helped her to survive. 

“The most sensible attempt to capture the elusive mystique of the great Billie Holiday.” (The New York Times.)
