LADY DAY AT EMERSON’S BAR AND GRILL

March 31-April 8, Overture Center, Wisconsin Studio

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.
