​Synopsis:  Featuring Anya Randall Nebel as Lady Day.  
The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia - Ermerson’ Bar & Grill.  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.    
“The richest jazz singing in town just now is at [this] subtle absorbing dramatic performance”  
.... Evokes all the sordidness of a woman entirely shaped by suffering
.... By the end ... one is filled with an unexpected joy!
