Pistarckle Theater is proud to present in a limited run, PROOF, the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play written by David Auburn. For two weeks only, audiences in St. Thomas will have the opportunity to see and experience this multi-award winning play.
PROOF focuses on Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius and University of Chicago professor, and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Upon Robert’s death, a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers is discovered in his office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play’s central question: Can Catherine prove the proof’s authorship? Throughout, the play explores Catherine’s fear of following in her father’s footsteps, both mathematically and mentally, the relationships around her and her desperate attempts to stay in control.

Pistarckle Theater proudly presents celebrated singer Denise Hummer in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill once again. Ms. Hummer will portray legendary singer Billie Holiday in one of Billie’s last, night club performances. Featuring over 14 classic Billie Holiday songs, this show tells the story of her life and loves, her tragedies and successes, her disappointments and her joy as the singer shares snippets and tales of her life.
Set in Philadelphia, we are transported to Emerson’s Bar and Grill where Billie and her band take the audience on an unforgettable journey into the heart and soul of this incredible singer. Pistarckle Theater will forgo our usual theater seating and set up cabaret tables and chairs to recreate a small club atmosphere offering bar service during the show. It is the type of atmosphere that Billie Holiday preferred, even more than Carnegie Hall.
Lady “Billie Holiday” Day was one our greatest Jazz Singers and her music still touches us 50 years after her tragic death. Iconic songs like God Bless the Child and Strange Fruit were only a part of her repertoire; her catalogue of songs was enormous. Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill is a unique theatrical experience, part night club act, part theater… but always entertaining.
So come and hear one of our islands best Jazz singers, Denis Hummer, as Billie Holiday, perform an evening of Billie’s classic jazz standards that will thrill you to your toes.
Performances: May 4, 11, and 18 at 8pm
