Summer Stages: BWW's Top Summer Theatre Picks - New Orleans!

Theatre is always a fun outing during the summer months, especially in New Orleans (can you say air conditioner?). Let's look at some of our top picks for shows to see around the Big Easy in June and July...

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Tulane Summer Lyric, June 16-19, http://summerlyric.tulane.edu/

This colorful show relays the story from the Bible about Joseph, the brothers who sold him out, and the father who welcomes him home with open arms. Joseph is packed with humor, flashy tunes, incredible costumes, and a heartfelt story with a wonderful message.

Heathers The Musical
NOCCA, June 16-19, http://www.nocca.com/

If you're ready to relive all of the horrors... I mean fun... of your high school days, Heathers is the show to see. Based on the 1988 movie of the same name, Heathers tells the story of Veronica Sawyer and her quest to silence the school clique that plans to ruin her life.

Thoroughly Modern Millie
Tulane Summer Lyric, July 7-10, http://summerlyric.tulane.edu/

First made famous by Sutton Foster and Gavin Creel as Millie and Jimmy respectively, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a lively show highlighting the dreams of a young woman moving from a small town to the big city. Millie has big plans, a big personality, and makes a big impression on all who see this spectacular show.

The Wizard of Oz
Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts, July 14-24, http://www.rivertowntheaters.com/

This classic story needs no introduction whatsoever. If you love the movie, you'll love the show. It's a classic. It's a favorite. It's magical. It's fun. It's a stroll down memory lane. You can't go wrong visiting your friends in the the merry old land of Oz with a sure-to-be wonderful cast at Rivertown.

Big River
Tulane Summer Lyric, July 28-31, http://summerlyric.tulane.edu/

Last, but not least, Big River is a musical take on the story of Huckleberry Finn, his newfound friend Jim, and their adventures as they travel along the Mississippi River. Being that a lot of schools require students to read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn over the summer, this may be a good one to take them to.
