Baby Erin Bounces Back


Baby Erin taught us how to bounce our booties like basketballs, then she became teacher for a day. The “Princess of Bounce” is getting a little older, but she still has skills bigger than her size. This week she released a new video. Click through to check it out.


'I'm Hip'

Ana Gasteyer Chats With NoDef



Tonight, Ana Gasteyer will be performing in a series dubbed Broadway on NOCCA. While this may be the funny girl’s first trip from the Great White Way to the Crescent City, but New Orleans has been in her heart and work for a long time.


Museum Pieces


Too much festing on your plate this spring? There is always art. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) are both gearing up for a couple annual events.


State of Undress: Drag & Burlesque Listings 3.26-3.29

Hey Kittens! GUESS WHAT! Bella Blue’s Blue Book Cabaret is back and better than ever at two new (for us) venues. You can now catch Bella and her band of sexy misfits at two locations: Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at the Bourbon Street Pub, and Thursday and Sunday at Gravier Street Social. Come check out our new digs! The stages are lovely, the crowds have been raucous, and Gravier Street Social will be featuring drinks styled and named by the entertainers. Check out all the happenings in front of the velvet curtain.


Room 220: TWF Picks


By Room 220

The 2015 Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival is upon us, and as it has for the past several years, offers a smorgasbord of enticing literary events. Here are Room 220’s picks for the things you don’t want to miss. (The festival runs Wednesday, March 25, through Sunday, March 29. See the full program here.)


Reveal Deal

French Quarter Fest Schedule Released



Festival season is knocking at the door. Today, the French Quarter Festival unveiled their 2015 schedule. Hundreds of performances over four days include local favorites like Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas, Raw Oyster Cult, and Amanda Shaw.


The Height of Write

Tennessee Williams Fest Previewed



The Tennessee Williams Festival is growing to be as large as its namesake’s legacy. On Thursday (3.26), New Orleans will be treated to a dense schedule of literary events, theatre, and talks.


Setting the Stage

Jazz Fest Cubes Reveal



Today, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival released the fabled "cubes" for 2015. Choices abound: Snarky Puppy, Wilco, or Jimmy Cliff, Dr.John or Trombone Shorty? Dust off your chairs and let the planning begin!


Much Ado About the Boogaloo: Lineup Released


The “little festival that could” is returning from May 15-17. This weekend, the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo released their 2015 schedule. Bold faced names like Mannie Fresh, the New Orleans Suspects, Wild Magnolias, and an all-star team assembled by Mike Dillon pepper the roster.


The Sunday Critic

The Tender Trap



An easily abused theatrical device – having an actor or actors perform in silence during the pre-show – is enjoying resurgence. If you want to give it a try, let me recommend casting Jen Pagan. In Christopher Bentivegna’s staging of Rudy San Miguel’s new Human Resources, Pagan logs at least 15 minutes at her desk on Playhouse NOLA’s postage-stamp stage while the audience assembles (no lobby) before the play proper begins: signing and filing documents, making marginal notes, brewing coffee.
