Deidrie Henry is truly mesmerizing in "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill" She somehow manages to embody Billie Holliday with out falling into imitation. She masters the conversational cadence of the show, which feels like it would be exceptionally difficult, and yet she makes it look effortless . The band is also exceptional. Even the placement of the stage is cool. It really feels like a club setting, as if we were indeed in the presence of a legend. I enjoyed every minute of its all-to-brief running time.
