Today PS Classics released the original Broadway cast recording of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. The two-disc set, which was recorded live at the Circle in the Square Theatre during performances in late May 2014, includes a complete rendering of the show.
Lanie Robertson’s musical play recounts Billie Holiday’s life story through the songs that made her famous. Among the songs featured on the recording are “God Bless the Child,” “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “Strange Fruit,” and “Tain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do.”

Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill runs through September 21 at the Circle in the Square Theatre.
