Explore the Legacy of Billie Holiday at This Screening
The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. Join us for one of Billie Holiday’s last performances, given four months before her death. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, often humorous, reminiscences to project a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.
