LADY DAY EXTENDS HER STAY – EMERSON’S BAR & GRILL RUNS IN THE KLEBERG THROUGH JUNE 25

Pull up a chair, order a delicious cocktail, and turn back the hands of time in our swanky nightclub for an intimate evening with legendary jazz songstress Billie Holiday. “God Bless The Child”, “Strange Fruit”, “Don’t Explain” and “My Man” are among the unforgettable hits you will savor from the lady who sings the blues. She’s got a life to sing.

Celebrate the life of Billie Holiday with an up close and personal cabaret seat as you immerse yourself in the music of the legendary jazz icon. This VIP special seating has the additional option of wine or sparkling bottle service.

The pre-show Z-Lounge entertainment moves inside the Kleberg for the first two weeks.  Once In the Heightsperformances begin on May 31, we welcome you to join us in the Topfer Theatre for pre-show entertainment.

 Recommendation: High school and above.  Adult language and situations.

Run Time: Approximately 2 hours including one intermission.

 

APPLAUSE

“Chanel delivers a riveting performance that rivals any – on any stage. Come and see for yourself…” — Soulciti

“A runaway hit… Her (Chanel) performance offers whimsy and laughs as well as goose-bump-raising songs.  The audience doesn’t need to know the history of this seminal American chanteuse ahead of time. They’ll enjoy the night and they’ll know it by the end. The wisdom of this gem of performance will deepen anyone’s appreciation of Holiday’s legendary music.” – CTX Live Theatre

“Chanel is a dynamic performer, both as an impressionist channeling Holiday’s voice and as a spectacular vocalist in her own right…There is a simplicity to her performance that allows the depth of Holiday’s pain to shine through in moving and powerful ways.” — Austin American-Statesman

“Lady Day is by far one of the top productions ever experienced at ZACH.” — The Villager
