Shinnerrie Jackson Will Star In LADY DAY at Weathervane

Producing Artistic Director Ethan Paulini has announced Lanie Robertson's Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill as the 3rd show in the 2019 54th Season. Lady Day joins the rotating repertory on July 13 and continues through August. Featuring such iconic songs as "God Bless the Child" and "Strange Fruit," Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill is an thrilling recreation of Billie Holiday's final concert. Filled with humor, hope and unforgettable storytelling, the legendary singer takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of her tumultuous life while treating the audiences to exuberant renditions of her beloved jazz classics. Alumni and audience favorite Shinnerrie Jackson returns to portray the iconic music legend. Creative team and a full schedule will be announced shortly.

"What luck!" said Paulini in a statement "To get the chance to produce this incredible piece of theatre with such a singular artist as Shinnerrie. It was so exciting to welcome her back in 2018 after several seasons away. This marriage of material and performer certainly result in no less than event theatre at it's finest. This will be a must see highlight of what is shaping up to be an unforgettable Season 54. All I can say is get those tickets early!"

Season 54 officially opens on July 6 with the annual Bubble and Squeak. Performances continue for 8 weeks through August 31, culminating in audience favorite Best Of. Other programming including Patchwork Players, will be announced in the coming weeks.
