It was announced yesterday that Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill‘s limited engagement at the Circle in the Square Theatre has been extended for a third time and will now play through September 21, 2014. Lanie Robertson’s musical play, which began previews on March 25 and opened on April 13, recounts Billie Holiday’s life story through the songs that made her famous. This news comes just one month after Audra won her record-breaking sixth Tony Award for her portrayal of the legendary jazz singer.
The production will be dark from September 1 through September 7 while Audra takes a previously scheduled vacation. Starting September 9, audiences will have a chance to catch Audra’s final 16 performances. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
