In January, the one-woman show Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, which depicts an evening shortly before the legendary Billie Holiday’s death as prepares for a performance and reflects on her life, had a sold-out run at Akron’s Weathervane Playhouse. It was helmed by one of Cleveland’s busiest directors Terrence Spivey, who also leads the theater program at Shore Culture Center and recently started his own company, Powerful Long Ladder, withcMarissa Nicole Davis takes the pivotal and demanding role of “Lady Day” as Holiday was known.

The demand for tickets was so great that the run was extended. So Spivey and Davis have moved the show north where they will reprise it at Powerful Long Ladder’s home at the Underground at Holy Trinity Cultural Arts. There it will be performed with Cleveland musicians Ed Ridley and Bradford McGhee supporting Davis’ star turn.

It will run Thursday through Saturday @ 7:30pm with matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday @ 3pm. Grab your tickets because they are sure to be in demand.

Tickets are $30-$40.
