“Audra McDonald…established authenticity within the first few low, purred notes. So does Lee” Boston Globe

“Tracey Conyer Lee nails the role of Billie Holiday” Provincetown Banner

“one of the most powerful finales I’ve ever seen on the stage, sending chills up your spine as you start to grapple with the magnitude of the story you’ve just witnessed.” Provincetown Magazine

“ironic humor…. stamped with melancholy and longing… a powerful performance” Cape Cod Times

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 just four months before her death. An intimate portrait of one of our greatest musical treasures, Lady Day…blends Billie Holiday’s greatest musical hits with candid reminiscences of her life’s struggles and triumphs.
Playmaker Talkback: August 6
