Today in NOLA 4.12.17


Tonight, Longue Vue keeps its gardens open for a chance to picnic and paint among the greenery. Bar Redux will screen Apocalypse Now, while The Theatre at St. Claude will perform New Orleans’ only live soap opera. The Franklin hosts a night of food, cocktails, and music inspired by the Iberian Peninsula. On this day in 1861, Louisiana General PGT Beauregard began the Civil War with the first shots on Fort Sumner. Now, more to do this Wednesday.

The Princess and the Pea and Pinochio will entertain audiences of all ages. Shakespeare is well represented Uptown and a "sidewalk sale" at the Old marquer celebrates smaller works.
