It’s 1958 and Billie Holiday stops by a seedy bar in Hells Kitchen to perform to a small crowd after a late night recording session.

Billie Holiday created jazz vocals by improvising in her music, just as she improvised in her life, focusing on the high points that helped her get through the lows and the song styling that accompanied it all. Leslie McCurdy portrays the great singer in this one-woman play based on Ms. Holiday’s autobiography, “Lady Sings the Blues”.
