Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, starring five-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald, just opened last night at the Circle in the Square Theatre (1633 Broadway, on 50th Street btwn. Broadway and 8th Ave.). BroadwayWorld was on hand for the after party and you can check out photo coverage below!

Under the direction of Lonny Price (110 in the Shade, A Class Act), Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill will play a strictly limited 10-week engagement with only 70 performances.

Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill recounts Holiday's life story through the songs that made her famous. 1959, in a small, intimate bar in Philadelphia, Holiday puts on a show that unbeknownst to the audience, will leave them witnesses to one of the last performances of her life. Through her poignant voice and moving songs, one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time shares her loves and her losses.
