Broadway actress takes on the life and music of Billie Holiday: 

Broadway actress Terry Burrell won rave reviews for her performance as Billie Holiday in "Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill" at Theatrical Outfit back in 2018. And if you missed her performance as the legendary jazz singer then, you’ve got a second chance to witness the transformation thanks to a limited run this month.

"Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill" returns to Theatrical Outfit for a limited engagement, running June 1 through June 26 at the Balzer Theater at Herren’s in Downtown Atlanta. 

The show, directed by Eric J. Little and written by Lanie Robertson, is set in a Philadelphia jazz bar in 1959 at one of Billie Holiday’s final performances. Along with telling stories from her life, Holiday performs classic songs including "God Bless the Child" and "Strange Fruit." 

"Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill" actually made its world premiere in Atlanta back in 1986; it opened on Broadway in 2014 and featured a Tony Award-winning performance by Audra McDonald. Burrell was nominated for a Suzi Bass Award for her performance in "Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill" in 2018; her Broadway credits include "Dreamgirls," "Thoroughly Modern Millie," and "Into The Woods" among many others. 

"Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill" closes out Theatrical Outfit’s 2021-2022 season, setting the stage for an exciting 2022-2023 season for the Atlanta theatre company, which kicks off in September with the world premiere of Flex. Artistic director Matt Torney says patrons next season will also be welcomed by a renovated lobby area, made possible through the theater’s successful The Heart of the City fundraising campaign, which also resulted in an HVAC system overhaul.
