The Lady and the Empress: The Life and Music of Bessie Smith

March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$25 – $27.50

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Williamson County Performing Arts Center presents The Lady and the Empress, a one-woman theatrical performance based on the life and music of 1920s blues legend, Bessie Smith, the Empress of the Blues. Written and performed by Doris Fields (Lady D) and backed by a 4-piece band, the show follows the life of Bessie Smith from her beginnings in Chattanooga and the tent shows of the South to the glamorous stages of Harlem. This 90-minute presentation is both entertaining and educational and features many of Smith’s most popular songs, including “T’ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do,” “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” and more.
