Some things may be different this Mardi Gras, but And The Ball And All is back and keeping Who Dats in the spirit of carnival! The classic New Orleans comedy about the Yatty ladies of the Krewe Of Terpsichore will be gossiping as only New Orleans ladies can, telling jokes about their husbands, and fighting over their krewe's ball and float themes!

Ball debuted in 1995 (the year in which it's set) and had a long initial run. The outrageous, affectionate chronicle of y'at social custom must be imbued with immortal energies, because it keeps coming back and audiences still love it....and this year ain't gonna be no different!

All audience members must wear a face mask upon entry and during the performance.
