Tonight, a little bit of MEMPHIS is hitting the Big Easy for a 6 day run at the Saenger Theatre. This soulful, Tony winning musical set in the 1950's highlights the story of a sassy club singer, Felicia, and the radio DJ, Huey, who wins her heart and is determined to help her rise to the top despite all of the obstacles they face together. While infused with the heavy theme of civil rights and the extreme prejudice of the time, MEMPHIS is splattered with song and dance that will certainly move you to your feet.

The latest show to sweep New Orleans' Saenger Theatre off its feet was the enchanted Disney fairy tale BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. This classic tale that brings many of us back to our childhoods was more magical than I could have imagined. From the set to the music to my favorite characters and everything in between, this show had me smiling from ear to ear and giggling like a 7-year-old the whole night.

Slidell Little Theatre's Production of dark comedy ARSENIC AND OLD LACE was a show that I had been looking forward to since I learned of their season schedule. It's rare that I attend shows that are not musicals, but when I read the synopsis, I knew I couldn't miss this one.

With it's catchy tunes (including the ever popular rendition of "My Guy"), fun-loving nuns, and a bit of crime on the side, this movie became a household favorite. Much to our pleasure, the movie was turned into SISTER ACT THE MUSICAL, and made its debut on Broadway in 2011. The show is currently touring North America, and makes its way to New Orleans this week.

Coming to the New Orleans Fringe Festival this year is a piece that is sure to capture the attention of local theatre supporters. New York City/Toronto based theatre company GOGOL ANNEX is bringing their show ANTEBELLUM to Mardi Gras Zone this weekend. Leah Loftin of GOGOL ANNEX explained that their theatre company is inspired by a lot of the work that they have done with theatre in Russia, and that their pieces are very experimental and based on historic people and events. "It's very progressive. We have a couple of pieces in development, and ANTEBELLUM is one of them. We work a lot with historical texts and historical characters. Right now we're really interested in these kinds of pockets, specifically history and stories that haven't necessarily been told," says Loftin.

How many times have you gone to see a theatrical production, and you are blown away by the music? I speak for myself when I say the music is what makes these productions so great, so emotional, so memorable. Believe it or not, folks, those are real people with some really incredible talent in that orchestra pit who don't always get the recognition they deserve. Without the orchestra, we lose those big bang musical numbers, the sound effects, and mood of each and every scene. I recently had the privilege of speaking with one of these musicians who is currently playing percussion on tour with one of the most popular shows out there, THE BOOK OF MORMON.

Today, September 6 starts the second weekend of LES MISERABLES as performed by Fuhrmann Performing Arts in Covington, Louisiana. If you missed their performances last weekend at the Columbia Theatre in Hammond, I suggest you hurry along and get your tickets for the shows in Covington now! This isn't something you'll want to miss. Aside from being the very last regional production of LES MISERABLES allowed in the United States due to the show heading back to Broadway in the near future (huzzah!), this is a pretty impressive production.

There are only a few weeks left of the New Orleans Shakespeare Festival at Tulane University, and I urge you to attend a show! My show of choice for this year's festival was THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED). I have attended the Shakespeare Festival before and have always enjoyed seeing various renditions of my Shakespeare favorites, and when I saw that THE COMPLETE WORKS was being tackled I knew I couldn't pass it up.

I remember going to plays at the children's theater in Rivertown when I was a very little girl. I even had a birthday party there once. I was so excited when I finally got to go to the 'big people' theatre with my grandmother. She took me to see YANKEE DOODLE DANDY, and that is something I have never forgotten. I returned to Rivertown Theaters recently to see their production of Monty Python's SPAMALOT.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET features the music of legends Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. The four came together for one night only at Sun Records in Memphis, TN on December 4, 1956, and the show gives audiences an inside look on what could be considered the greatest "jam session" of all time. Audiences can expect to hear popular hits such as 'Blue Suede Shoes,' 'Hound Dog,' and 'I Walk the Line' along with 'Great Balls of Fire,' 'Fever,' and 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On.'

January 29, 2013

On Sunday, January 27 the Jefferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS) ended their run of AVENUE Q at the North Star Theater in Mandeville, LA. AVENUE Q was once described to me as "Sesame Street for big people," and I do not think I have heard a more accurate description. The cast is made up of people and puppets, and includes very adult content. While there are many good lessons to be learned from this show, it is not for the easily offended. It takes sensitive subjects such as racism and homosexuality, and makes light of them in a blunt and honest way.
