Ike is presented in the most vile way so expect that (as he should be) This may be a turn off for audiences.

It may be. But for me, if they have to do these damn bio-based stories (and I believe they don't have to, but they keep on doing them) I'm much rather see something frank and raw than just a hagiography, as I feel most of them wind up.

In that sense, even though I'm not particularly fond of the writing style in Lady Day, I appreciate that Robertson does take us to the dark side of the character, no punches pulled. It would have been way easy to do just a loving tribute to Holiday - much more daring to see her fall apart in front of us.

We know Ike was horrid to Tina. Why gloss over that? Because it's a "musical comedy?" I'm glad to see they didn't fall for that.
