Jazz icon Billie Holiday -- dubbed "Lady Day" by her friends -- forever changed the world of jazz and popular music with her pioneering vocal style. Despite great success and critical acclaim, though, Lady Day struggled with substance abuse and legal troubles for much of her life.

"Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill", starring Anya Randall Nebel, recreates this singular night in music history on the stage at Anacostia Playhouse. [less-]

Based on George Bernard Shaw's play "Pygmalion", this witty battle of the sexes follows self-absorbed, misogynistic linguist Henry Higgins as he attempts to train Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl plucked from the street, how to speak properly -- though she's much smarter than he realizes. With a feisty leading lady and a score full of instantly recognizable songs like "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?" and "I Could Have Danced All Night," it's no wonder "My Fair Lady" became a huge Broadway hit and, in 1964, was turned into an Oscar-winning film starring Audrey Hepburn.

"An Octoroon" is Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Obie-winning riff on a 19th-century antebellum melodrama.

Don't miss this reprise run when "An Octoroon" returns to D.C.'s Woolly Mammoth Theatre. [less-]
