Nicole Sumlin on a bandstand with a microphone is simply worth the price of admission.

Nicole Sumlin is superb as Billie Holiday, Ed Ridley plays one mean piano and Bradford McGhee plucks a happy tune.  The result is a special evening of musical theater!  This is an absolutely must see!

The Beck Center production of Lady Day at the Emerson Bar and Grill is a chance to see a falling star as it plummets to earth and is suddenly extinguished. It is a morality play of an immense talent whose life was cut short due to her self destructive behavior. A mixture of sad and delight it is an example of intimate theater at its best.

Attention! Attention! Ladies and gentlemen, the Beck Center proudly presents Ms. Nicole Sumlin, songstress and actress extraordinaire! Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill gives a glimpse of the late chanteuse Billie Holiday’s last days as a singer. It also offers a great chance for a vocalist with acting chops to entertain, move and impress an audience. Enter Sumlin, who, as Holiday, does just that.
