  3. Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill


Journey back to 1959 for an unforgettable rendezvous with Lady Day herself—the incomparable Billie Holiday. Featuring classics such as “God Bless the Child” and “Strange Fruit,” this acclaimed play with music transports you into a small bar in Philadelphia for one of the icon’s final concerts,  transforming the theater into an immersive nightclub. Building on the success of Mosaic’s past productions Twisted Melodies and The Devil’s Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith, this fresh production of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill explores the triumphs and traumas of Holiday’s life and career while celebrating the resilience of Black women throughout history.
