Billie Holiday Story 2014 tour dates
The multi-talented British singer, actress and writer, NINA KRISTOFFERSON, debuted her passionate and exhilarating, self-penned, one-woman show ‘Billie Holiday Story’ in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival. Following a sellout season at London’s Charing Cross Theatre in the spring of 2013, Nina will now be hitting the road in April and May 2014, taking her critically acclaimed show about the life of Lady Day to audiences around the UK.
Nina Kristofferson’s ‘Billie Holiday Story’ 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 Rogers and featuring Martin Shaw on trumpet, Albert Gaza on tenor sax and clarinet, Phil Donnelly on double bass and Elliott Henshaw on Drums.
A potent, rejuvenating and exotic theatrical cocktail of songs and stories from Billie Holiday’s extraordinary but tragically short life, the show stirs up haunting memories, harrowing stories and glorious comic and uplifting moments from Holiday’s journey from poverty to stardom.
It also features some of Billie’s greatest songs: Strange Fruit, God Bless the Child, Lover Man, Don’t Explain, All of Me and many more.
