WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's 1959 and legendary musical performer Billie Holiday (Alexis Rogers) is just four months away from death as she steps to the microphone in a seedy bar in Philadelphia for one of her final performances. Though she is there to sing, the audience will find she has more on her mind than music. In addition to featuring a dozen of her hits, Holiday tells the tale of who she is, as a woman, as a black performer, as a civil rights leader and so much more, in her own original style. Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill showcases the talents of the strong, yet, fragile woman who pioneered a new way of looking and listening to music while presenting a story fused with drama as much as humor that plays like one of Lady Day's legendary songs.
