Lady Day Takes The Tonys

The 1959-set play, which centers on one of the legendary Billie Holiday's final public appearances, Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, gets its second extended run at Circle In The Square on Broadway, as Audra McDonald walks away with her sixth (record-breaking) Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, for her portrayal of one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time. The story takes place in Philadelphia in the months before Holiday's death and poignantly recounts her life story through the songs that made her famous, including "God Bless the Child," "Strange Fruit," "What a Little Moonlight Can Do," "When a Woman Loves a Man," "Foolin' Myself," "Don't Explain," "Somebody's On My Mind," "Taint Nobody's Bizness," and "Baby Doll" among others.  The Lonny Price directed production earned a second Tony Award for Best Sound Design of a Musical for Steven Canyon Kennedy. A cast album of the play was recorded live by PS Classics and will be released July 15, 2014.
