Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill
Cabaret Space, Temple of Music and Art
Tucson, AZ
Share this event:

Emerson's Bar and Grill in Philadelphia, in 1959, has seen better days, but none better than Lady Day herself. In this performance, about four months before her death, she presents music plus biographical stories, remarks and reminiscences. Between the more than a dozen songs, she regales the audience with a commentary that is sometimes profane and ribald, sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, and sometimes heartbreakingly sad.

Featuring acclaimed Tucson jazz singer Anna Anderson and pianist Collin Shook, this spare, riveting play recreates the ambiance and allure of a late-50s club and a legendary but tragic performer at the close of her astonishing career.

Direction by Kevin Johnson, Set Design, Mike Boyd, Costume Design, Shana Nunez.

December 6 (no performance on December 7) through 23, 2012, at the Cabaret Space, Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave.
