    Time: 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM EST
    Event Description:

    Helen Hayes Award Winning Actress, Iyona Blake returns to Creative Cauldron to portray one of America’s most iconic jazz legends, Billie Holiday. In March of 1959, "Lady Day", as she was called, performed one of her final shows in a run-down bar in South Philly.  She turned jazz songs and standards into searching, and searing, portraits of life and love gone wrong. "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill" relives this final performance with Billie telling her life story and singing over a dozen of her most salty, and often humorous, numbers (“When a Woman Loves a Man,” “Taint Nobody’s Business If I Do,” “Pig Foot and a Bottle of Beer”. Superb jazz pianist Mark Meadows leads the band as Iyona performs this riveting portrait of the woman behind the legend.
