Audra McDonald (Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun) brings Billie Holiday to life in this tribute to the work and all-too-brief life of one of America's greatest jazz vocalists. Re-creating a 1959 concert Holiday gave in Philadelphia—a show that would turn out to be one of her last—Lady Day tells Holiday's life story through some of her best-loved songs, including “Strange Fruit” and “God Bless the Child.”
