Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill

  • Theater West End 115 West 1st Street Sanford, FL, 32771 United States (map)

WRITTEN by Lanie Robertson
STARRING Desiree Montes as Billie Holiday
DIRECTED by Felichia Chivaughn Ellison

The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. 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.

"A searing portrait of a woman whose art was triumphant."
