Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill starring Karole Foreman
DESCRIPTION Turn back the hands of time for an intimate evening with legendary jazz songstress Billie Holiday: Lanie Robertson’s play with music treats the audience to one last performance by the iconic singer. In 1959 in a seedy Philadelphia bar, just four months before her death at age 44, “Lady Day” takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of her tumultuous life, interspersed with stunning renditions of her beloved repertoire, including “God Bless the Child,” “Crazy He Calls Me,” “T'ain't Nobody's Business If I Do” and “Strange Fruit.” Recommended for ages 16 and up: contains adult situations and explicit language. Oct. 16-Nov. 3, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.; $35-$49; International City Theatre is located in the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, 330 E. Seaside Way, Long Beach, CA 90802. For tickets and info call (562) 436-4610 or go to InternationalCityTheatre.org.
