"When the Music Stops: The Anita O'Day Story"
World Premiere of a new musical play by Erica Berman
A celebrated vocalist with the Stan Kenton, Gene Krupa, and Woody Herman orchestras, jazz singer Anita O'Day experienced both "high times and hard times." Onstage, O'Day was a revolutionary artist, refusing the limits of the standard "girl singer" and forging her own unique path. Offstage, though, she struggled with addiction. Madison favorite Sarah Streich and the FST Jazz Trio will share O'Day's tumultuous story and memorable music from her celebrated Verve recordings from the 1950s.
We're excited to present "When the Music Stops: The Anita O'Day Story" at Café Coda, an intimate 100-seat jazz club in Madison, WI. With a full service bar and variety of seating options, the venue is the perfect place to share the story of a jazz legend.
VIP Tickets ($35) guarantee seating in the front section of the venue (cabaret tables and chairs and seating on the sides).
General Admission Tickets ($25) are first come, first served in the back half of the venue (seating at the bar, booths near the bar, and standing room only).
7:00 pm We recommend arriving early so you've got plenty of time to share a cocktail with friends and secure your seats.
