Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill
Lady Day brings its star, Audra McDonald (Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, A Raisin in the Sun, Ragtime, Master Class) her sixth Tony and its audience a fantastic evening of Billy Holiday music and drama. Holiday’s stormy life is recounted during this Philadelphia nightclub appearance in which she sings her biggest hits. McDonald recreates Holiday beautifully, physically and vocally, without mimicry. Do not miss this beautiful performance before the show closes in late August.
