DETAILS

Wed, Thu, Fri at 8pm - Doors open at 7:40pm

Paul Sanchez’s musical adaptation of Dan Baum’s book, “Nine Lives” has played to critical acclaim locally and in New York and is a fitting way to commemorate the 9th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Featuring a cast of 17, “Nine Lives” musically depicts the personal stories of a diverse selection of New Orleanians across the forty years between Hurricanes Betsy and Katrina.

The show's credits are a who's who of New Orleans theatre and music. Broadway, TV actor (The Good Wife) and new New Orleanian Michael Cerveris coproduces the show along with Rick Duplantier and Roxy Bergeron. Cerveris heads up a cast that includes Sanchez, trumpeter Shamarr Allen, who recently debuted in the James Brown biopic "Get On Up," and New Orleans-based theatre, TV and film actor Bryan Batt. Popular singers Debbie Davis and Robin Barnes and close to a dozen local musicians take the stage at the historic Le Petit Theatre August 27 through 29.
