Inside The Arts: Transplant, Songs Of Blueberry Hill In Concert, Crescent City Chamber Music Fest

Dante Anthony Fuoco, Transplant

This week on Inside the Arts, we catch up with comic writer and educator Dante Anthony Fuoco. The millennial who moved to New Orleans post-Katrina explores an uncomfortable question, "How can young white people put down roots in a city that's maybe better off without them?" His one-man comic show, Transplant, continues its run in the St. Claude Arts District.

Then, writer/performer Butch Caire joins us as he gears up for a nostalgic look at classic New Orleans R&B in the JPAS production, The Songs of Blueberry Hill in Concert.

And, the Manhattan Chamber Players return to town for the 2nd Annual Crescent City Chamber Music Festival. Artistic director Luke Fleming joins us.

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