‘Lady Day’ opens Jan 16. at Prizery
SoVaNow.com / January 08, 2014January heats up next week with “Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar & Grill,” a musical drama based on the final performance by legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday. The show opens at The Prizery in South Boston on Jan. 16.
It’s the 1950s, and Holiday is nearing the end of her life embittered and fighting the ill effects of alcohol and drug use. Giving one last great performance, she reflects on her music, her times, the hardships of coming up poor and becoming a music legend in a racially segregated world. Her numbers also are interlaced with salty, often humorous reminiscences. The show features adult themes.
Holiday is portrayed by Galyana Esther Castillo, a veteran of past Prizery Summer Theatre productions. She has also appeared on stage with the Forestburgh Playhouse and Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre.
Special ticket prices are being offered for “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill.” With groups of 10 or more, adult and senior ticket prices will be $16 for all shows (excluding the already discounted half-price matinee on Wednesday Jan. 22, 2014 at 3 p.m.) Shows are Jan. 16-19 and Jan. 22-23.
