The Unity Theatre Ensemble production of Lady Day at the Boston Bistro (An Evening with Billie Holiday) was reviewed this past weekend for the Post-Dispatch by veteran freelance theater critic Gerry Kowarsky, who called it "a moving tribute to an extraordinary figure" with "an outstanding performance by Mardra Thomas as Holiday and excellent piano playing by husband Reginald Thomas."
The musical play, which is a fictional account of a nightclub performance by Holiday near the end of her life, continues this weekend at the Ivory Theatre in south St. Louis. You can read the complete review of the show here.
