Hear songs from this special tribute to Billie Holiday, a woman who shaped so much more than jazz and the blues….
ABOUT THE MUSICAL playing @ the Stackner Cabaret through October 30:
As the 1950s come to a close, the famous Billie Holiday puts on a show in a small bar in Philadelphia. Unbeknownst to the audience, they will witness one of the last performances of her extraordinary life. Full of show stopping numbers like “God Bless the Child,” “Strange Fruit,” and “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” Lady Day shares her loves and losses in this award-winning musical fresh from its Broadway revival. Pull up a chair for an intimate evening that’s up close and personal, with one of the greatest jazz/blues vocalists of all time! Tickets and more information for the full production are available here at The Rep’s website.
