“Deidrie Henry as Billie Holiday is, in a word, sublime. She takes this incredibly juicy character and effectively makes the audience feel joy, grief, and everything in between. Her voice, showing undeniable characteristics of Billie Holiday is one of it’s own.”

“Overall, I absolutely adored this production. Henry’s breathtaking performances as one of entertainment’s most tortured souls is worth the price of admission. She gives us a unique look into the psyche of a woman who while adored by all, seemed never truly happy.” – Taylor Clemons, BroadwayWorld.com

"Critics routinely talk about the emotional power of Holiday’s music — but what strikes me about her art is the restraint, clarity and lack of sentimental histrionics in her live and studio recordings. This production is a fine tribute to that spirit."
– Marty Rosen, Leo Weekly
