A moving portrait of Holiday’s struggles with addiction, racism, love and loss, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill is a testament to her ability to mine humor from hardship and to the transformative power of song. Show stopping musical numbers such as “God Bless the Child”, “Strange Fruit”, and “What A Little Moonlight Can Do” are interlaced with salty, often humorous, reminiscences to project an unforgettable portrait of the lady and her music. Post-show talkbacks scheduled: Jacqueline K. Dace, Director of Internal Affairs for the National Blues Museum 2/19/17 after 3:00 pm show; Phil Dunlap, Director of Education and Community Engagement at Jazz St. Louis, 2/26/17 after 3:00 pm show
