In this powerful musical tour-de-force by Lanie Roberton, Florida Rep’s ArtStage Studio transforms into the gritty Philadelphia bar where legendary Jazz singer Billie Holiday gave one of her final public performances. Set in 1959, the musical chronicles the singer’s heart-wrenching life story and celebrates the music she gave the world. With the help of her piano man, Billie lets her music tell her story and shares her most beloved songs like “Strange Fruit,” “God Bless the Child,” “When a Woman Loves a Man,” and “Ain’t Nobody’s Business if I Do.”
