The official description of LADY DAY AT EMERSON'S BAR & GRILL is as follows: "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, which began previews on March 25, 2014, opened on April 13, 2014, and is enjoying an extended run until August 10, 2014, recounts Holiday's life story through the songs that made her famous. In a small, intimate bar in 1959 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". Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill is directed by frequent Ms. McDonald collaborator Lonny Price. The pair have been developing and working on Lanie Robertson's play with music for more than two years. The intimate setting of the Circle in the Square provides a unique theatrical experience, drawing audiences - especially those seated at the tables onstage - into the performance."
