Lady in Denmark | Goodman Theatre

Lady in Denmark

Oct 19 - Nov 18, 2018 In the Owen

Every memory has a soundtrack of its own.

“I’m gonna love you like nobody’s loved you/come rain or come shine.” After the death of her husband, a Danish American woman living in Chicago finds solace in the hauntingly beautiful music of the couple’s favorite singer, Billie Holiday. A soulful, music-infused tribute to the legendary torch singer’s power to heal and inspire, Lady in Denmark is a passionate meditation on life, marriage and mortality from Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith—“one of the country’s top talents” (Time Out Chicago).
