The music is great, and Alexis Rogers mimics Holiday's delivery wonderfully, but what makes this an even more worthwhile performance is the delivery of the biographical... continued

A must!! As soon as Alexis Rogers opened her mouth it was as though "putting someone in a "TRANCE." Her singing, the setting, the trio and her biographical journey was amazing. If you miss "Lady Day at Emerson's, SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!

We were able to grab the last tickets for the Matinee on 2/10. Alexis Rogers is riveting as Billie Holiday. For one and half hours she sings her songs and tells her story. Felt like I was seeing the real Billie Holiday. Don't miss.

Alexis delivers an intense believable performance.PHEW!!! Well worth coming from the southside on a cold Monday night. The musician were so good; really created the feeling of being in Emersons'.

All four participants were great and very authentic. I was back in 1957 and I did not mind it.

The small venue of around 150 people was perfect for transporting me to a "cool jazz club" in Chicago of the 1960's. Of course Lady Day wasn't there then but the other... continued
