Mabel Mercer is frightened! Frightened that this is her last show…that her long-time friend/manager is finally abandoning her…that she is too old. On stage for probably the last time, this legendary performer that influenced the likes of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Billie Holiday confronts the events that has led her to this moment. From a white British mother who refused to acknowledge her black daughter to vocal mishaps that ultimately led to her signature Story Song style, Mabel reveals all as she prepares to take her final bow.
