July 17, 1959: Billie Holiday dies and soon after Frank O’Hara pens one of his most beloved poems - an intersection of elegy and love letter - “The Day Lady Died.” Co-produced by the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) and in partnership with The American Poetry Review, Azuka is creating a new work based on this poem, the character of this extraordinary man, and his love for the music of Billie Holiday.
Recommended for ages 16+. Contains mature language and subject matters.
“…regardless of emphasis, it’s always this sense of boundless potential, of excitement, of irrepressible restlessness, that dominates O’Hara’s poetry; the extraordinary immediacy of a voice that seems clearer now than ever before.” – The Guardian
