504.522.2081 | www.lepetittheatre.com Executive Artistic Director: Sonny Borey Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre is celebrating its 91st season in a space that has been a starting ground for such luminaries as Harry Connick Jr., Bryan Batt, Patricia Clarkson, Wynton Marsalis and Gabrielle Porter. Top-quality productions are the mainstay of the theater, which recently completed a million-dollar renovation and creation of a state-of-the-industry orchestra pit. Le Petit presents shows and special events on our Main Stage, in Muriel’s Cabaret Theatre and Teddy’s Children’s Corner. Upcoming:
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. See the Web site or call for updated information. (Parking available at $6 in the Jax Brewery lot at North Peters at Toulouse streets, and at Omni Royal Orleans Hotel’s garage on Chartres Street.)

cabaret | June 6-29. Featuring Roy Haylock as the M.C. and Jessie Terrebone as Sally Bowles. The wildly popular John Kander-Fred Ebb musical that became one of the most popular musical films in history. All the world’s a freewheeling cabaret in pre-war Germany when an American writer meets a divinely decadent girl who is performing in a sleazy nightclub.

what, has this thing appeared again tonight? | Aug. 8-17, in Muriel’s Cabaret Theatre. Playwright and director Jim Fitzmorris teams with The NOLA Project and Le Petit to present his new play, which blends Shakespeare,
science fiction and horror with a New Orleans setting in a bizarre mix that is uniquely Fitzmorris and immensely entertaining. (The play will premiere at Tulane’s Shakespeare Festival from July 25–August 3 before moving to Le Petit.)

fearnot | Sept. 13-Oct. 5 (Sat. and Sun. at 2 p.m.). Presented by The NOLA Project, Fearnot is an original play adapted from the Brothers Grimm tale about a boy who sets off on an adventure to learn what fear is.
