About The Show
“BILLIE! BACKSTAGE WITH LADY DAY”, is an exciting evening about one of America’s greatest jazz/blues legends. This story of Billie Holiday takes you back to an era where the joints were jumping and Hollywood was hopping. It was a time where glitz and glamour ruled and where ladies were dainty and gentlemen were smooth; where gowns flowed and hats topped short cropped hair.
This musically haunting, sad, happy, unpredictable journey of jazz/blues singer, Billie Holiday takes you on a winding road of love, joy, blues, racism and astounding hit songs that tell the story of a life hard fought. The road takes you to places and people in Billie Holiday’s life that provided both pain and pleasure, excitement and disappointments. It explores her relationship with her mother who was the “glue” in her life. The highs and lows, the strengths and fragility of Billie’s turbulent life has been able to bring a new level of emotion and respect to music and inspiration to musicians and vocalists all over the world.
