Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill
by Lanie Robertson

August 18-28

It’s the evening show at Hal Emerson’s Bar and Grill in Philadelphia, PA, March of 1959, and you’ve got a seat at the bar. You’re witnessing one of the final performances of the legendary Billie Holiday, here for the night to fill the small room with jazz, memories, and perhaps just a little moonlight. As she and her faithful accompanist Jimmy weave their way through the evening of song, Lady Day can’t help but reminisce about the long road that led her back to Emerson’s, and the world that set her on that road. Music is her joy, and she endeavors to keep that moonlight present for as long as she possibly can. Billie Holiday is brought to glorious, profound, humorous, and heartbreaking life before your eyes. Experience the show which garnered Tony and Outer Critics Circle Awards in its recent revival.
