      Ella Fitzgerald: First Lady of Song

      Award-winning actress Alexis J Roston salutes America’s favorite jazz singer, Ella Fitzgerald. Roston was last seen at Milwaukee Rep in her mesmerizing star turn as Billie Holiday in "Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill" (Chicago’s Jeff Award, Black Theatre Alliance Award) and in the 2014 production of "The Color Purple." In a spellbinding performance, Roston effortlessly emits the sultry swing and playful joy that made Ella an American treasure. Classic tunes by Ellington, Gershwin, Porter and more include “Summertime,” “The Lady Is a Tramp,” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing.”
