We are excited to once again partner with Farmers Alley Theatre to present a moving production about the last days of Billie Holiday. The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday’s last performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, often humorous reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.

DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF JERROLD T. FRENCH

Performances: April 29 & 30, May 1, 5-8, 12-15
