In this musical, Billie Holiday's life story unfolds through the songs that made her famous. It's 1959, in an intimate bar in Philadelphia, and Holiday puts on a show that unbeknownst to the audience, will leave them witnesses to one of the last performances of her lifetime. Through her poignant voice and moving songs, one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time shares her loves and her losses.
