The Billie Holiday Story

Enjoyable insight into a unique talent

Under the pretence of a gig, actress Nina Kristofferson uses the ‘stage patter’ sections of the show to provide narrative about the singer’s tragic life, whilst nailing down Holiday’s voice and mannerisms. Enjoyable insight into a unique talent, plagued by men, drugs, racism and the law.

Assembly George Square, 623 3030, until 14 Aug, 5.45pm, £14 (£13).
