Cripple Creek is bringing the regional premiere of Bruce Norris’ “Clybourne Park,” the hottest ticket on Broadway in 2012 to New Orleans at The Shadowbox Theatre!
A response to Lorraine Hansberry’s masterpiece “A Raisin in the Sun,” “Clybourne Park” has won numerous awards including the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony® Award for Best Play.
“Clybourne Park” takes place in a house in south Chicago over a span of 50 years. In 1956, the house is located in a white neighborhood and sold to an African-American family (the Younger family in "A Raisin in the Sun"). Then in 2009 the neighborhood has changed into an African-American community and the house is sold to a white couple. Uproariously funny, Norris dissects race relations and middle class hypocrisies in America past and present.

3 day seminar series beginning Thursday and ending on Sunday.
Hotel Maison de Ville has been receiving reports of paranormal activity almost as long as it has been operation. Thanks to a full-scale investigation by the Ghosts of Louisiana Paranormal Society we now have official evidence to back those claims. While none of the paranormal anomalies seem to be malicious there is certainly a "spooky" factor to the recent findings. Audio recorders, left in unoccupied rooms, picked up at least 6 different voices. Perhaps the most startling audio evidence came from a room on the second floor of the slave quarters that is reported to have survived the Great New Orleans Fire of 1788. A woman's voice in that recording whispered "burning... catch me". Amongst the orbs, shadows and voices in our rooms lies your, personal ghost-hunt expedition.
This is not just another New Orleans ghost tour! It is an interactive exploration of the paranormal at the site of abundantly reported paranormal activity. Space is limited so sign up now.
June 25 - 28, 2013
A flame represents the inception of something new, a sign that the perfect conditions have aligned to create light. But how does the flame maintain its resilience? The light will continue to burn bright only through a chain reaction- a pathway- whereby both internal and external forces unite to nurture its brilliance.
In June 2013, shine your light for case management at CMSA’s 23rd Annual Conference & Expo in New Orleans, LA. This multi-day journey is the sole health care event designed to deliver clinical, professional, regulatory and personal growth for the present and future of cross-continuum case management. Whether your case management light has been glowing for years, your flame is brand new or you would like to generate a spark, a spot is waiting for you in New Orleans.
