Ted Louis Levy Receives Two Nominations at The Big Easy Awards
The nominations are special for Mr. Levy as the production, presented by The Le Petit Theatre, was mounted roughly 25 years after Ted's collaboration with one of entertainment's iconic artists and personal inspirations, Mr. Gregory Hines. "The opportunity to have worked alongside Mr. Hines was a life changing experience", said Ted about the original Broadway production that warranted he and Mr. Hines Tony Nominations for their collaboration.
Broadway Veteran Ted Louis Levy, garners a double nomination for the 2018 Big Easy Awards. Fresh from taping an appearance with New Orleans native son Harry Connick Jr., Ted Louis Levy receives nominations for both "Choreography" and "Best Lead Actor in A Musical" in the roll of another New Orleans Icon, Mr. Ferdinand Joseph La Menthe Morton a.k.a Jelly Roll Morton in Jelly's Last Jam.
To stand in the space where greatness was created and immortalized was, in Ted's
words "Supremely humbling and monumentally educational". Recalling the experience with Gregory Hines and George C. Wolfe, "It is one experience sharing in the creative process with geniuses but having the opportunity to perform the role and attempt to recapture some semblance of the Broadway production was a master education offered up by the team of George C. Wolfe, Susan Birkenhead, Luther Henderson and Gregory Hines. It was an awesome, nightly revelation."
