Lady Day Starring Audra McDonald

@ Circle in the Square Theatre – Show @ 8PM


Six-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald returns to Broadway to take on the role of legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday in the Broadway premiere of Lanie Robertson’s Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, recounting Holiday’s life story through the songs that made her famous, including “God Bless the Child,” “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,”Strange Fruit,” and “Taint Nobody’s Biz-ness.” In 1959, Holiday puts on a show in a small, intimate bar in Philadelphia that unbeknownst to the audience, will leave them witnesses to one of the last performances of her lifetime. Through her poignant voice, one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time shares personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written.
