vienna theatre project presents this phenomenal, award-winning Broadway and West End hit. Through a series of iconic songs and storytelling, we capture the brilliant singer Billie Holiday as a simultaneously strong and desperate figure who finds some solace in her songs, but more in her own personal “moonlight” of drugs, booze and memories. This moving piece is far from a simple songbook, it is a powerful struggle.
Book a seat at the venue. The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday’s last performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, often humorous reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.

Earthy and seemingly honest … close your eyes and Lady Day is back. Associated press

Along with salty humor, joy, bitterness and plummeting despair, that sense of suffering as a constant companion permeates and elevates Lanie Robertson's slender yet affecting bio-play. Hollywood Reporter
