Two legendary singing icons will come to the Wyndham’s Theatre this years when, Tony Award® winner, Audra McDonald, makes her West End debut playing Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill.
Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill was originally postponed after McDonald announced her pregnancy.
Now the Wyndham’s Theatre will host this intimate evening filled with inspiring and moving songs interspersed with personal stories of Holiday’s loves and losses through a turbulent but extraordinary life.
Featuring some of Billie’s best loved songs, including God Bless the Child, Taint Nobody’s Biz-ness, What a Little Moonlight Can Do, Strange Fruit and Crazy He Calls you’d better pull up a chair and order a drink because this legend’s got a life to sing.
Six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, is one of Broadway’s biggest stars. Her performance in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill at the Circle in the Square Theater, New York, in 2014, earned her one of those record breaking six Tonys!
