For the first time in New Orleans, Le Petit produces the Tony award-winning musical that tells the true story of Ferdinand Joseph LeMothe, a.k.a. Jelly Roll Morton. Born a Creole American in the Faubourg Marigny, Jelly Roll Morton took the music he found in the cribs of Storyville out into the wide world. He became a star in Harlem, Chicago, and Los Angeles, going so far as to proclaim himself as the “creator of jazz.” Featuring explosive dance and an original score inspired by the best musical traditions of New Orleans, Jelly’s Last Jam is the musical triumph that won’t give you the blues.
If you feel like escaping Acadia Park Apartments in Houma, Louisiana, Louisiana for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
