Theatre Calgary presents Lady Day at Emerson Bar and Grill –
Lose Yourself in the Music and Story of Billie Holiday
It’s March 1959, and in an intimate, seedy Philadelphia bar, Billie Holiday takes the stage for one of her final performances. Treat yourself to one powerhouse night of jazz, including her most memorable songs like “What a Little Moonlight Can Do”, “Strange Fruit“, and “God Bless the Child“. Told alongside the honest, riveting, and heartbreaking story of the singer’s life, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill will mesmerize you in a musical evening you won’t soon forget.
This production is made possible by the generous support of The Al Osten & Buddy Victor Legacy Fund.
