By Lanie Robinson

Come on down to Emerson’s. In a low-rent South Philly bar, a legend prepares to perform. It’s 1959 and Billie Holiday is taking the stage for almost last time, intimately sharing her loves and losses just with you. Give yourself over and be swept away by the singer and the song.

From the Artistic Director
When I was a freshman in college in Chicago, I lucked into taking an amazing African American history course taught by a professor emeritus at DePaul. I was fascinated by his stories of the people he had known—but my favorite story had to be of the night he got to hold Billie Holiday’s dog. I’ve loved the music of Holiday since I was a child, and the story of her turbulent life and times is deeply moving. I love the gorgeous way story and song bring Lady Day to life in this powerful play.
