My Friend Lester
  • Brighton Fringe

This sell-out show of the last two festivals is back, now with a live band! Billie Holiday and saxophonist Lester Young played and recorded such achingly beautiful music together it was impossible for many to believe they were not lovers. This magical and moving story tells the untold tale of their romance through some of their own words and the songs they recorded together. Friends? Soulmates? Lovers? The answers are in their music.
