Helen Hayes Award-winning actress, Iyona Blake (Caroline or Change) returns to the cauldron to portray one of America’s most iconic jazz legends. In 1959, Billie Holiday, or “Lady Day” as she was called, performed one of her final shows in a run-down bar in South Philly. In Robertson’s award-winning play, Holiday engages the audience with salty, often humorous reminiscences of her troubled life as a travelling performer in a segregated south. With the help of her piano man, Jimmy Powers (played by Award-winning composer, actor Mark Meadows) she lets music tell her story, sharing soulful, heart-wrenching and bawdy songs from her most memorable canon including: “Strange Fruit,” “God Bless the Child,” “When a Woman Loves a Man,” “Taint Nobody’s Business If I Do,” and “Pig Foot (And a Bottle of Beer).”
