Discover the life of a uniquely American voice when Jewish Ensemble Theatre opens its 2017-2018 season with Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill by Lanie Robertson. Directed by Lynch Travis, the play stars Detroiters Lauren LaStrada as jazz vocalist Billie Holiday and pianist Alvin Waddles as her longtime collaborator and accompanist, Jimmy Powers. More than a musical revue of the iconic jazz vocalist, the performance creates the story of a musical legend’s sad last days to life.
Performances on select dates through Sunday, Oct. 29.
