Nina Kristoffersonâ€™s â€˜Billie Holiday Storyâ€™ is an engaging, moving and intimate piece of musical theatre performed by Nina in the title role with an outstanding band of jazz musicians led by MD/pianist Allan.
A potent, rejuvenating and exotic theatrical cocktail of songs and stories from Billie Holidayâ€™s extraordinary but tragically short life, the show stirs up haunting memories, harrowing stories and glorious comic and uplifting moments from Holidayâ€™s journey from poverty to stardom. It also features some of Billieâ€™s greatest songs: Strange Fruit, God Bless the Child, Lover Man, Donâ€™t Explain, All of Me and many more.
