The Mercury Theater
The Mercury Theater will have two shows available for Chicago Theatre Week. Tickets for both are priced at $30.
Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill.
Turn back the clock to 1959 for an intimate cabaret performance with the greatest jazz vocalist of all time, Billie Holiday. More than a dozen musical numbers are interlaced with salty, often humorous reminiscences revealing a portrait of the lady and her music. With a distinctive sense of musical structure and a deep knowledge of jazz and blues, she developed a singing style that was deeply moving. She left behind a body of work as great as any vocalist before or since.
