The jazz legend is Billie Holiday. The time is 1959. The place is a seedy bar in Philadelphia. The audience is witness to one of Billie Holiday’s final performances mere months before her death. She sings more than a dozen of her famous songs interlaced with salty, often shocking reminiscences of her damaged life resulting in an unforgettable portrayal of the lady and her music that is pure theatrical magic.
