About

Nina Kristofferson's musical play brings a captivating cocktail of songs and stories from Billie Holiday's life. The highs and lows of Billie Holiday's illustrious career are punctuated by some of her greatest hits, including God Bless The Child, Good Morning Heartache, Strange Fruit, Don't Explain and All Of Me. Haunted by experiences of racial segregation, prostitution, drugs and abusive men, Lady Day's unusual timbre told a story like no other jazz singer's. Her influence on contemporaries like Sinatra is no secret and her influence on jazz is indelible. In this mesmerising performance, singer and actress Nina Kristofferson brings Holiday's remarkable story to life.
