Get ready to fill up those plush red seats, grab some tissues for tears (induced by joys and/or sorrows), and be transported into an array of stories thanks to NOLA's own Le Petit Theatre.
Beginning Le Petit’s season, you’ll be transported to the 70s to experience Louis Armstrong’s final concert in biographer Terry Teachout’s Satchmo at the Waldorf (Oct. 5-21).
Starting the new year off joyously, the Tony-award winning A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder (Jan. 18-Feb. 3, 2019) will tell the story of Monty Navarro’s schemes as he tries to eliminate eight heirs in his way of becoming Earl of High Hurst.
Settling into the year, Baby Doll (March 15-31), a one-act play based on Tennessee Williams’s 27 Wagons Full of Cotton, will darken the comedy—and is right in line with the Tennessee Williams’s New Orleans Literary Festival.
In May, Pianist of Willesden Lane (May 10-26), the true story of Lisa Jura’s escape from Nazis during WWII, will be performed by Jura’s very own daughter—pianist Mona Golabek.
And ending out the year, the holiday classic A Christmas Carol (Dec. 7-23) will be performed by the students of Le Petit’s Young Conservatory Program.
