The Jungle Theater stage becomes a small, intimate bar in 1959 Philadelphia where the legendary Billie Holiday recounts her life story through the songs that made her famous. In Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, acclaimed jazz vocalist-actor Thomasina Petrus portrays Holiday as she puts on a show that turns out to be one of the last performances of her life. Obie Award-winning and Tony-nominated director Marion McClinton returns to the Jungle to helm another jazz-infused production following Bars and Measures in 2016.
