Addison Theater Company performs Laine Robertson's gripping story about legendary jazz singer Billie Holliday, with musical arrangements by Danny Holgate. It's 1959 in a South Philadelphia night club, where legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday is giving one of her final performances. Through a skillful blend of biography and cabaret, this extraordinary play draws us into Holiday's triumphs and setbacks - from scrubbing steps in Baltimore through her rise to fame. The production features more than a dozen of the songs that made Lady Day an American icon, including "God Bless the Child," "Where Our Love has Gone," "Strange Fruit" and "Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do."
