    A show about one woman’s life-long love for Billie Holiday’s music, for the stars, and for her lost baby brother.

    A show about one woman’s life-long love for Billie Holiday’s music, for the stars, and for her lost baby brother.

     

    Who Wants To Live Forever? is about camping holidays and friendship; about learning how to sing so that you can sing to the stars; about loss and memory, and turning memory into myths of Amazon princesses sailing the skies.
