Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill
Farmers Alley Theatre is honored to once again partner with the Gilmore Piano Festival for a moving production about the last days of Billie Holiday – LADY DAY AT EMERSON’S BAR & GRILL, running concurrently with the festival April 29th thru May 15th. 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. Directed by Shanisia Davis and starring Alexis J Roston as Lady Day.
