Inside the Arts: Something Rotten, Harry And The Thief, Picturing Creole New Orleans

Jan 14, 2020

This week on Inside the Arts, the Tony nominated Broadway musical, Something Rotten, opens at Le Petit Theatre. This original musical comedy, with a tip of the hat to the Bard, stars Matthew Michael Janisse and Richard Spitaletta. They join us with director Michael McKelvey.

Then, a creative re-imagining of abolitionist, Harriet Tubman, continues the NOLA Project's season with the regional premiere of Sigrid Gilmer's Harry and the Thief. It's part science fiction, historical drama and comedic farce. Director Khiry Armstead joins us with actress Samantha Beaulieu.

And, we explore the photographs of Arthur P. Bedou in the exhibit, Picturing Creole New Orleans, on view at Xavier University. Bedou was this city's leading African American photographer during the first half of the 20th Century. Curator and art historian, Dr. Mora Beauchamp-Bryd, will join us in our studio.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m., and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
