Six-time Tony Award-winner McDonald continues to star in LADY DAY AT EMERSON'S BAR & GRILL on Broadway through October 5, 2014. The show began performances on March 25th, 2014, and opened on April 13th, 2014. McDonald won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Play and sound designer Steve Canyon Kennedy won for Best Sound Design of a Play.

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 lifetime. Through her poignant voice and moving songs, one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time shares her loves and her losses. Among the songs that are performed: "God Bless the Child," "What a Little Moonlight Can Do," "Strange Fruit" and "Taint Nobody's Biz-ness."
