A hit novel that became a hit play that became a hit film! Jack Nicholson played the leading role of McMurphy in the movie as a charming rogue who pleads insanity to get out of his latest prison sentence. Unfortunately, his plan backfires and he is sent to a mental institution where he clashes head on with a fierce disciplinarian by the name of Nurse Ratched. McMurphy and Ratched compete for the hearts and minds of the other patients in a power struggle of wits and charisma versus smarts and tyranny. He leads his fellow patients out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and loose women. The play stands as one of the finest dramatic and heart-wrenching scripts in modern theatre and culminates in both a shocking yet somehow sweet ending. (Contains some adult language)

by Heidi Scheuermann - Sep 23, 2014

I love plays that make me think. This is a play that made me think. It made me think about all of the people, not only in my personal life, but also around the world who suffer from some form of mental illness. It's real. It exists. And it should not be ignored. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest addresses mental illness head-on, and The Nola Project took the content and presented an absolutely stunning rendition. (more...)

The NOLA Project to Present MARIE ANTOINETTEThe NOLA Project to Present MARIE ANTOINETTE
by BWW News Desk - Aug 24, 2015

Everyone loves a hot mess. Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Honey Boo Boo, Heidi and Spencer Pratt, The Real Housewives of [insert city here]. We watch them out of admiration, out of fascination and - let's be honest - out of a hidden desire to see them fall from grace. The eighteenth-century version of the reality star was Marie Antoinette. Adore her, admonish her, despise her or behead her, the one thing you couldn't do was ignore her. In David Adjmi's hot new play, the queen that everyone has an opinion of is finally given her own voice, and you might be surprised by what comes out. "Marie Antoinette" has played Yale Rep, SOHO Rep, A.R.T. and Steppenwolf Theatre, and The NOLA Project is thrilled to present this regional premiere to a city that knows a thing or two about French royalty. Three-time Big Easy Award-winning director Mark Routhier ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", "Balm in Gilead") will direct and Big Easy Entertainer of the Year Cecile Monteyne will star as the controversial queen.
