The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company of New Orleans kicks off its fourth season summoning up the ghosts of the French Quarter: Set at 722 Toulouse Street, VIEUX CARRÉ follows a young writer, not unlike Williams himself, who arrives one winter in the Crescent City for the first time and falls in love with the fabled French Quarter. It’s a dangerous affair, though, and one that involves ambiguous love triangles, desperate longing, and heartbreak. Will the boy be able to navigate his way out of the fog teeming with quarter characters, starving society ladies, hustlers, and buskers? Or will he find himself crushed in the flood of carnal and spiritual desire?
A nonprofit performing arts center housed in a landmark 1853 church, presenting a full season of classical music, opera, theatre and jazz. Home of the Marigny Opera Ballet. Occasionally available for event rentals.
