‘Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill’ begins March 26 at Lyric Stage


Following the four most successful and highest-attended seasons in its 35- year history, The Lyric Stage Company of Boston announces the sixth production of the 2009- 2010 Season: Lanie Robertson’s dramatic journey through the tumultuous and tragic life of the great jazz vocalist Billie Holiday, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. Directed by Spiro Veloudos, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill runs March 26 through April 24, 2010 at The Lyric Stage Company with both afternoon and evening performances. Tickets range from $29 to $54 and are available by calling the box office at 617.585.5678 and online at www.lyricstage.com. The Press Performance is Sunday, March 28, 2010 at 3:00 p.m.

This Off-Broadway hit features the soulful and emotional music of blues legend Billie Holiday, voiced through a dramatic cabaret act. During one of her final performances, she intertwines songs such as “God Bless the Child” and “Strange Fruit” with stories of her life as she wrestles with her past and addiction to heroin. It becomes clear that music is a force that helped her to survive.

The Lyric’s production of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill features the award-winning Jacqui Parker as well as Chauncey Moore.

The Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill creative team, led by director Spiro Veloudos, includes musical director Chauncey Moore, Skip Curtiss (scenic designer), Mallory Frers (costume designer), and Karen Perlow (lighting designer). The production manager is Maureen Lane and the assistant stage manager is Amanda Ostrow.
