A great afternoon of live theatrical entertainment, in a nice intimate theatre. Synthia developed a great character that portrayed Billie/Lady Day. The performance maintained your interest and kept you intrigued. Best of Luck with the show...continued

Well done story about Lady Day but a bit slow at times and I never felt like I was hearing the real Billie singing. But it was heartfelt and the two actors (the second being her Piano Man) did a good job.

The actress does not sound like Billie Holiday and she had difficulty getting her lines out. Also, the woman sitting near me who kept opening and closing all the zippers on her purse to get more cellophane wrapped candy to open during the show...continued

I thought the play and the performance were pretty good, but it fell a little short of outstanding for me. Well worth seeing, but not something that I would twist my friend's arms to go see. What I did think was outstanding was the "Piano Man." ...continued

An enjoyable afternoon, but many distractions. It's a very small theatre so people entering late have to disrupt the performance. Of course, there are those that must unwrap candy even though they are asked to do it before the play starts. The...continued

The show was hindered by the late-comers. The theatre is so small that late comers completely destroy your experience. This theatre should have a zero tolerance policy. I think the play could be slightly better if piano man was used more in...continued

The performance was great! I highly recommend it. It took me a while to get tickets to the performance because it always sold out every time I tried to purchase tickets. The performance was very down-to-earth and raw. It seemed very real. You...continued

I really enjoyed the play. The person that played Billie Holiday was awesome and she had a great voice. I wish it would have been a little bit longer but it was nice.
Worth going to see.

Great performance from beginning to end. Though the actress doesn't sing exactly like Billie Holiday (really, who can?), she captures the emotion and the struggles Ms. Holiday endured.

I really enjoyed the storyline however, the singing was subpar :-( You have to bring it when you are singing a Billie Holiday song.
