Billie’s not going anywhere! Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, starring six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald, has extended its limited Broadway run for a final time. The production, which previously announced that it would play through September 21 at the Circle in the Square Theatre, will now take its final bow on October 5. The play with music will be dark from September 1 through September 7.

Directed by Lonny Price, the play by Lanie Robertson tells the life story of legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday through the songs that made her famous. Set in 1959, in an intimate bar in Philadelphia, Holiday (McDonald) puts on a show that, unbeknownst to the audience, will leave them witness to one of the last performances of her lifetime. The show features 18 musical numbers, including “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “Tain't Nobody’s Biz-ness” and “God Bless the Child.”

Circle in the Square’s next show, The River, starring Hugh Jackman, will begin performances on October 31.
