About Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill
Have you ever witnessed a legend? Behold the tour-de-force portrait of the iconic jazz songstress. In a tattered Philadelphia bar, it’s 1959 and Billie Holiday is performing, and story-telling, for one of the last times before her tragic death months later. In this haunting yet humorous cabaret, the prolific vocalist interweaves personal and professional anecdotes with memorable canon including “What a Little Moonlight Can Do”, “God Bless the child,” “Strange Fruit,” and “Ain’t Nobody’s Business if I do.” Through her distinct and frank form of expression, audiences will empathize and admire the soulful lady throughout an evening that hits all the right notes.
We are located at 1825 N Central Ave, off of Coronado Road in a complex shared by the Phoenix Art Museum. Parking is FREE: follow the red signage for theatre parking when you arrive. The lobby, along with the ARTBAR+BISTRO opens at 12:00PM for matinees and 5:00PM for evening performances.
