Theatre Louisiane, Inc. Presents: "The Insanity of Mary Girard: A Dream in One Act"

DATE
Fri, Jan 18, 2013
through Sun, Feb 3, 2013
DETAILS

Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Mr. Stephen Girard (1750-1831):

Banker.
Mariner and Merchant Mogul.
College Founder.
Philanthropist.
Primary Financier for the War of 1812 with a historical collections museum erected in his honor.

A Frenchman by birth and naturalized in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who, before the turn of the 18th century, became one of the wealthiest men in the United States of America. To quote Stephen Girard as being 'a man of power' would prove a severe understatement. However, despite his high profile, much remains unknown about the life of his spouse, Mrs. Mary Girard.

Director, Matt Story, rings in the new year with THE INSANITY OF MARY GIRARD: A DREAM IN ONE ACT as his directorial debut in collaboration with Theatre Louisiane, Inc and a collective of independent theatre artists and designers determined to unveil a subterranean, subconsciously spooky world unlike New Orleans audiences have ever seen!

LOCATION

The Shadowbox Theatre
2400 St. Claude Ave. (across from the New Orleans Healing Center @ St. Roch)
New Orleans, LA 70117
