Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill
The Freeport Factory Stage will premiere the soulful and shattering production of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, on Thursday, March 29th. This production features the incomparable jazz singer, Mardra Thomas as Billie Holiday, with local musician Flash Allen at the piano.

Directed by Julie George-Carlson, Lady Day is a fictional account of the final appearance by Billie Holiday at a seedy night club in Philadelphia, only four months before her death at the age of 44. The play, written by Lainie Robertson, was originally produced in 1989 and has enjoyed great success in regional theaters for the past 20 years.

Critics have called Mardra Thomas "the best vocalist to interpret Holiday. Her vocal styling and portrayal of Lady Day have mesmerized audiences across the country." Known for her realistic portrayal of Billie Holiday in concert and on the theatrical stage, Mardra is a true jazz vocalist with a voice well suited to showcase Holiday's sculptured phrasing that stamped a signature style on jazz singing.
