Karole Foreman as Billie Holiday.
freeFall Theater's newest musical transports you to Philadelphia in 1959, to witness one of Billie Holiday’s very last performances. Woven inbetween Holiday’s most popular and heart-wrenching songs are brief looks into the last months of her life. These poignant performances run from March 25 to April 24—typically Wednesday through Sunday, unless otherwise specified. Adult tickets range from $45 to $55 depending on the showtime, while tickets for folks 18 and under stay at a consistent $25. Head to the freeFall website to buy your tickets, where you can select your seats ahead of time.
