Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill [Original Broadway Cast Recording]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
A play with music by Lanie Robertson, Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, directed by Lonny Price, first opened on Broadway in the spring of 2014 with Audra McDonald starring as the heartworn Billie Holiday singing and telling stories about her life accompanied by her piano player Jimmy Powers (portrayed by Shelton Becton) at a rundown club in Philadelphia in 1959, less than four months before her death. McDonald's inspired take on Holiday's singing in what is essentially a one-woman show is on full display here in this two-disc official cast recording.
