Now Playing Onstage in New Orleans - Week of 5/11/2014 LES MISERABLES SCHOOL EDITION
CHRISTIAN YOUTH THEATRE LAFAYETTE
5/16-5/16/2014
Broadway's legendary musical has been specially adapted to meet the needs of young performers. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one the greatest musicals ever written.This epic story recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes and honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father - violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean's adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed.Originally adapted from Victor Hugo's timeless novel, LES MISÉRABLES SCHOOL EDITION introduces a new generation to the grand and inspirational story that has touched the hearts of millions. For, within LES MISÉRABLES SCHOOL EDITION lies the universal truth "To love another person is to see the face of God" and this message is sure to have a lasting impact on your cast, crew, audience, and school alike.

Now Playing Onstage in New Orleans - Week of 5/11/2014 MARRY ME A LITTLE
PROMETHEAN THEATRE COMPANY
5/9-5/18/2014
MARRY ME A LITTLE uses several unknown songs by the undisputed master of the contemporary Broadway musical to tell a charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival as a modern single. Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, unshared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams. Originally conceived by director Norman Rene and playwright Craig Lucas (Prelude To A Kiss), this ingeniously-constructed "revusical" is told entirely through songs either written early in Sondheim's career (including numbers SATURDAY NIGHT) or cut from his groundbreaking Broadway musicals (A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, ANYONE CAN WHISTLE, COMPANY, FOLLIES and A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC). A must for Sondheim aficionados, this easily produced one-act musical is also perfect as a benefit, curtain warmer or second-stage production, as it can be played on virtually any existing set - or no set at all. It's a smart, funny, sophisticated and moving evening, and a fascinating lo

Now Playing Onstage in New Orleans - Week of 5/11/2014 MARRY ME, A LITTLE
Mid City Theatre
5/8-5/18/2014
Opening May 8th at Mid City Theatre, Promethean Theatre Co. presents an evening featuring the work of one of America's greatest living composer, Stephen Sondheim. Using several of the artist's lesser-known songs, Marry Me A Little tells a charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival as a single young person living in contemporary New Orleans. The plot, told solely through song, tells the story of two strangers home alone on either side of a Bywater shotgun apartment on a Saturday night. They pass their time with sweet secrets, unshared fantasies, and melancholy regrets; never knowing that they're just a wall away from each other and the end of their loneliness.??Conceived and developed by Craig Lucas and Norman Rene, the show features music primarily cut from other Sondheim shows including Saturday Night, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, and Into the Woods. Promethean's production will be the New Orleans premiere. The production will be directed by Promethean's Artistic Director, Stephen Eckert and star Ashley Rose Butler and Aaron Lind. Leah Farelly will design set while Brian Debs will handle lights and sound. Tory Gordan music directs with Glenn Aucoin providing accompaniment. DATES: May 8-(Thursday 8:00pm,) May 9-(Friday 8:00pm,) May 10-(Saturday 8:00pm,) May 11- (Sunday 2:00pm,) May 15-(Thursday 8:00pm,) May 16-(Friday 9:00pm,) May 17-(Saturday 9:00pm,) May 18-(Sunday 8:30pm) TICKETS: $25, Students $20 by phone RESERVATIONS: 504.488.1460 or www.MidCityTheatre.com "I couldn't be more excited to be working on a piece of musical theatre," say's Eckert, "particularly something by Stephen Sondheim, who's work to which I've always been drawn. Marry Me, a Little provides such a solid foundation to build and experiment from, and I can't wait to get to work. It also is a piece that hits close to home for me being a terminally-single young person myself."
