Heralded by Southern Repertory Theatre as a star of their 25 year season, Degas in New Orleans explores the inner turmoil and conflict of Edgar Degas, the great French Impressionist painter, as he visits his New Orleans family to pursue painting but tumbles into bankruptcy and adultery. Edgar Degas must choose between passion and painting. This riveting play is inspired by true events in the life of Edgar Degas and is set in scandalous post Civil War Louisiana. Parlor/gallery of the old Civil War house provides poetic staging opportunities.
