From Shakespeare to musicals, here are the performances coming to Tulane this summer

The New Orleans Shakespeare Festival at Tulane is back with its first full season since 2019. Directors Jon Greene and Torey Hayward tell us about the upcoming production of the romantic comedy “As You Like It.”

Tulane’s Summer Lyric Theatre opens its 55th season with a production on “Bandstand,” a fairly new musical that takes the audience back to post-World War II America. Director Diane Lala and WWNO announcer and actor Bob Pavlovich join us with the details.

Louisiana’s wetlands have long been known for duck hunting, but recently, this tradition has become threatened by the state’s eroding coastline. Produced through a collaboration with Climate Central, WWNO Coastal Desk reporter Halle Parker tells us how duck hunting is adapting to meet a changing environment.

Today’s episode of Louisiana Considered was hosted by Diane Mack. Our managing producer is Alana Schreiber and our digital editor is Katelyn Umholtz. Our engineers are Garrett Pittman, Aubry Procell, and Thomas Walsh. 

You can listen to Louisiana Considered Monday through Friday at 12:00 and 7:30 pm. It’s available on Spotify, Google Play, and wherever you get your podcasts.
