The Apollo has announced that it will be the first theater in the United States to offer extended presentations with hologram technology. Billie Holiday, who performed at the Apollo nearly 30 times, will be the first hologram performance at the Apollo Theater. The performance is scheduled to debut around Thanksgiving.
Holiday first appeared at the Apollo at 19 years old. She was inducted into the Apollo Hall of Fame in April.
The interactive show will include her voice taken from audio recordings.
“When people see this, they’re going understand the vast opportunities that we’ll have to bring some of these performances to life,” Ms. Procope said.
