This incomparable singer has won a Tony Award (The Wiz), Grammy Awards, and France’s Victoire de la Musique, among others. In this eagerly awaited Strathmore return engagement, Dee Dee Bridgewater incarnates the legendary Billie Holliday, recreating Lady Day’s takes on such classics as “God Bless the Child,” “Lady Sings the Blues,” “All of Me,” “When You’re Smiling,” “I Can’t Get Started” and more. “Astounding!” (The New York Times).
