March Events

“A Life of Seduction: Venice in the 1700s”
You can experience the grandeur of Venice without the eight to 10 hour plane ride with “A Life Of Seduction: Venice in the 1700s” at the New Orleans Museum of Art now through May 21. New Orleans is the only American stop for this exhibit depicting the pageantry, ceremony and extravagance of Venetian life in the 1700s. Three hundred year old carnival masks, costumes and exquisite paintings are just some of the objects on hand. Information, NOMA.org.


Beautiful – The Carole King Musical
This jukebox musical, playing at the Saenger Theatre March 7-12, tells the story of singer Carole King. It features King’s own songs as well as other popular tunes from the era (mostly the 1950s and ’60s). Acclaimed playwright and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Douglas McGrath wrote the play’s book. Information and ticketing, SaengerNOLA.com.


Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival
Start prepping your vocal chords: the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival is back for its 31st year and with it comes the annual “Stella!” shouting contest. Of course, there’s more to the festival than that. This year’s event is March 22-26 and will feature a number of fascinating panels, master classes and discussions. Guests will include actor Bryan Batt (Mad Men), as well as acclaimed authors like Pulitzer Prize-winner Rick Bragg, mystery novelist Bill Loehfelm, retired talk show host Dick Cavett and our very own Errol and Peggy Scott Laborde! Information, TennesseeWilliams.net.
