• Ian Willis deposited Billie Holiday on stage at the Belvoir Street Theatre in the group Group logo of HistoryHistory on Humanities Commons 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    I recently attended a theatre performance with a strong humanitarian message at the Belvoir Street Theatre in Surry Hills. The show was a combination of cabaret and drama, highlighting many historic social issues and challenges of the early 20th century that still resonate today. The show portrayed the life and times of African-American jazz singer Billie Holiday in a performance called ‘Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill’.
