Today in NOLA 4.4.17


This Tuesday, snack on bites from over half a dozen food trucks at Rose F. Keller Library's EATmoor event. Author Linda Thurman discusses the Hollywood South, while aerial and circus artists perform at Cafe Istanbul. The Saenger hosts the traveling production of Broadway's "The Bodyguard." Today is ripe for political causes, from Equal Pay Day to the nationwide protest screening of "1984." On this day in 1764, the first official announcement in d'Abadie's journal of Acadians arrival in Louisiana. Now, more to do this Tuesday. 


Offerman's Dunces Broadway Bound?


Yesterday, The Daily News received lots of attention for the paper’s Trump/Palin slamming “I’m With Stupid” wood. However, the paper also ran a story of greater interest to New Orleanians. The News reported that A Confederacy of Dunces may be heading to Broadway soon.


Saenger Unveils Broadway Lineup


The spring lineup reveals continued today with the Saenger Theatre’s Broadway in New Orleans series. The 2015-2016 season offers a strong mix of classics, blockbusters, and film adaptations. Broadway’s past and present are represented with a roster that ranges from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Disney.


Second City Staged at Saenger

Chicago Reviewed



The Broadway in America touring production of Chicago is bringing one of the America's most popular stage shows to NOLA. The Jazz Age musicalization of a 1920s drama occupies a unique place in American culture, having become to we’re-smarter-than-all-those-chumps cynicism (the chumps being, I guess, everybody outside the theatre) what Annie is to teeth-grinding optimism. The work centers on incarcerated murderesses, the diva Velma Kelly and the ingénue Roxie Hart. The duo are rivals for sympathetic press coverage as well as the attentions of prison matron Mama Morton and high-powered shyster Billy Flynn. Chicago purports to explore the American obsession with fame at any price. Really it’s a celebration of being hipper than thou.


Every Little Step They Take

Theatre Review: 'A Chorus Line' from Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane



Once you catch your breath after the ecstatic opening sequence, the most striking thing for a first-time viewer of A Chorus Line is what a simple, low-tech show it is.


Uptown Home Invasion Reported By Tulane Police


Two men forced their way into a house Friday afternoon in the University area, according to Tulane police. About 3 p.m., a man who is not affiliated with the university answered the door of his home, which is located on Broadway St. near Spruce.


Annie, Mamma Mia! on Saenger Theatre's 2014-15 Lineup


One successful season is underway at the restored Saenger Theatre, and some of Broadway’s biggest hits are ahead in 2014 and 2015. Upcoming shows include Chicago, Phantom of the Opera, Dirty Dancing-The Classic Story on Stage, Annie, Once, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Mamma Mia! 


Uptown Construction to Shut Broadway, Freret Block


The long Uptown construction season continues, as road closures that already snarled the likes of Napoleon and Jefferson Ave. are set to expand to more main thoroughfares. Broadway and Freret St. are the next two pieces of pavement to be shut to cars.

'Wicked' Brings New Sorcery To New Orleans: Theatre Review



Most of us expect certain happenings when we see musical theater—people sporadically bursting into song and dance, quick-witted one liners, facials that would be frightening in normal conversation, and bright lights that have our eyes saying “ohhhhh.”


'Million Dollar Quartet' Shakes into Mahalia


They say timing is everything, and in one divine coincidence, on a random Tuesday in December of 1956, the timing was right for the jam session of the century to be laid to track. In the storefront studio of Sun Records in Memphis, four of rock n’ roll’s founding fathers assembled for an hours long free-form and impromptu play date where they recorded renditions of their favorite songs of gospel, rock, rockabilly and R&B.
