Today in New Orleans: 5.9.14


The Ogden is celebrating 10 years of Sippin’ in Seersucker tonight at Canal Place, with fashion, food, and four open bars. Promethean Theater Company’s Marry Me, A Little is on its second night in Mid-City, and NOMA is screening Casablanca. On this day in 1944, country singer and former Governor Jimmie Davis, who wrote “You Are My Sunshine,” took office for his first term as governor of Louisiana. Now, more to do this Friday. 

 

Sippin' in Seersucker (The Shops at Canal Place, 6 p.m.)

It’s the 10 th anniversary of the Ogden Museum’s annual fundraiser, a celebration of Southern art and Southern style. In addition to all-things-seersucker, there will be four specialty cocktail bars, music by local party band the Creole String Beans, and two floors of shops. Ticket prices range between $25 and $50.  

 

Friday Nights at NOMA (NOMA, 5 p.m.)
Powerful vocalist and NOCCA grad Mykia Jovan defines her sound as “atmospheric soul music.” Tonight, Jovan is providing the music, and the museum is screening the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman classic film, Casablanca, in the Sculpture Garden.   

 

Marry Me, A Little (Mid City Theatre, 8 p.m.)

Promethean Theater Co. presents a story of two lonely people on either side of a Bywater shotgun. The play shows the pair alone on a Saturday night, separated only by a wall. Marry Me, A Little features the music of composer Stephen Sondheim. Tickets are $25, $20 with student ID. 

 

booze, broads, and bukowski (Shadowbox Theatre, 8 p.m.)

Picolla Tushy’s show blends the grace of burlesque with the surly spirit of Charles Bukowski. The Bluestockings, a group of seven women, will recite dirty words as they dance and bare all (or some).
