Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill

BUY TICKETS

Helen Hayes Award Winning Actress, Iyona Blake (Caroline or Change) returns to the cauldron to portray one of America’s most iconic jazz legends. In March of 1959, Billie Holiday performed one of her final shows in a run-down bar in South Philly. “Lady Day,” as she was called, turned jazz songs and standards into searching, and searing, portraits of life and love gone wrong. And this final performance wove together over a dozen of her most salty, and often humorous, numbers (“When a Woman Loves a Man,” “Taint Nobody’s Business If I Do,” “Pig Foot and a Bottle of Beer,” for a riveting portrait of the woman behind the legend.
