Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill

You don’t just hear Audra McDonald sing Billie Holiday, you feel her. She becomes Billie as soon as she opens her vocal chords and closes her eyes. And as you listen deeper, closer, you swear it’s 1959, and you’re in a small bar in Phillie listening to Billie express her pain as only a jazz diva can. A stunning and very personal performance, anyone can see that Audra grew up loving Billie Holiday. No wonder Audra McDonald has won six Tony® Awards for her West End debut, yes debut, as the jazz icon Billie Holiday. We will never stop loving Billie. Her turbulent songs of passion and loss are brought to life by a woman of enormous talent. The score includes the best of the best, like; What a Little Moonlight Can Do, Strange Fruit, Crazy He Calls Me, Taint Nobody’s Biz-ness, and God Bless the Child. There is a reason why the word diva exists.
