with a Concert at Arts Garage
and an Encore Performance of
Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill
Jazz artist Paulette Dozier has two major events on her calendar for September: She will open the Miami Beach Stage Door Theatre’s 2012-2013 season with an encore performance of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, and she will celebrate the release her third CD, In Walked You, with a concert at Arts Garage in Delray Beach.
Dozier’s performance as Billie Holiday in playwright Lanie Robertson’s portrait of the legendary jazz singer just four months before her death earned glowing reviews and played to sold out houses at the Boca Raton Theatre Guild in April, and more recently at the Broward Stage Door Theatre in Coral Springs. The production will run for four performances only – September 21st -23rd at the Byron Carlyle Theatre in Miami. Now in its second year, the Miami Beach Stage Door is the resident theatre company at the historic Byron Carlyle Theatre.
In Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill the iconic jazz singer reflects upon her life, loves, tragedies, and triumphs in a powerful monologue interspersed with music from her timeless songbook.
Arts Garage in Delray Beach has quickly become one of South Florida’s top spots for jazz – and as such is the perfect venue to host an introductory concert celebrating the South Florida release of Paulette Dozier’s newest project – her third CD, In Walked You. As in her previous albums, In Walked You highlights a number of unforgettable compositions from the jazz canon, and features an original composition – the title track Dozier penned with longtime collaborator Mike Levine.
