Tony and Grammy Award® winner Dee Dee Bridgewater brings the essence and spirit of the late, great Billie Holiday to the stage.
Billie Holiday was a true artist of her day and rose as a social phenomenon in the 1950s. Her soulful, unique singing voice and her ability to boldly turn any material that she confronted into her own music made her a superstar of her time.
Told through onstage triumphs and backstage personal trials, LADY DAY tells the inspired and heart-wrenching story of Billie's attempt at a final comeback performance. The production features over twenty-five standards including: “Don’t Explain,” “Good Morning Heartache,” “A Foggy Day (In London Town),” “Them There Eyes,” “Strange Fruit,” “My Man,” “God Bless the Child,” and “Mean to Me.”
