Full Horse: Play Proceeds Go Towards NOPD's Mounted Unit (PHOTOS)


This morning, theater folks and NOPD’s mounted unit joined forces and horses. In honor of the Saenger’s presentation of Warhorse, a World War I story from the perspective of a soldier’s horse. Three actors suited up as the head, the heart, and the hind, and met one of NOPD’s mounted unit’s own four-legged steads.

The French Quarter is full of music, paintings, and performance, but some of the art is harder to categorize. Street artists get creative with their crafts, blending costuming and composing, miming, and dancing. Rachel June captures some of the Quarter's regular entertainers during their unconventional shifts.
