I loved it. It was a very emotional experience for me. I recommend the show. Please do not expect the singer to imitate Billie's voice; she doesn't and shouldn't!

Excellent. I’m a Billie Holiday fan and I loved it. The singing was excellent and on point. Her interpretation of the heroin nod was perfect. Lastly, but oh so important the story is told many questions answered. Superb.
