The show was fantastic, the crowd appeciative and ended with a standing ovation and the cast willing to share and talk with the crowd after the show ended as opposed to just going backstage.

Saw this several years ago before adding the second act.... it’s a pretty amazing show, especially in such an intimate setting.
I see a lot of theatre (3-4 times a month) and have always been impressed with the shows at the Whitefire.

Loved both the acting and the singing. First-rate musicians! The first half is basically done as an interview with a few of the classic Holiday songs thrown in, giving you a background on the singer and her trials and tribulations, specifically...continued

Wonderful show. Talented entertainer, very relaxed in her presentation. There was a bonus second half after intermission of her singing with a live jazz combo. An enjoyable evening.

This one woman show of the life of Billie Holliday was pulled off only for the fact that the performer was the writer of the piece. I enjoyed the content and even liked the singing as she would weave the songs into the story line. Although I...continued

Valet parked at a restaurant across the street from the theatre. Be careful to read the signs! Not a bad seat in the theatre. Very enjoyable evening. Tonight, I'm going back to the theatre for a different show.

The performance was great! You could tell that a lot of research went into the telling of the story.
Everyone should see it. Talking with the actors was a plus.
