JAG Productions presents "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill" by Lanie Robertson, and directed by Jarvis Antonio Green.

Its 1959 and jazz legend Billie Holiday is playing a seedy bar in Philadelphia. It will be one of her last performances. As she shares stories about her stormy personal life, her battle with addiction and her ground-breaking vocal style, she also, of course, sings. Featuring a sensational score, including “God Bless The Child”, “What a Little Moonlight Can Do” and “Strange Fruit”, this haunting play with captivating insights of the life of one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, is not to be missed.

Run time: 1 hour, 30 minutes, no intermission. June 7th-10th.

This production contains language that may not be suitable for children under 16.
