NEW ORLEANS (press release) – This fall, a new musical on the life of jazz legend Louis Armstrong will debut at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans from October 1-8. Through its partnership with Broadway in New Orleans, The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, is offering new and specialty experiences to celebrate the triumphant tribute to New Orleans’ favorite native son.
Whether you plan on attending the matinee on Oct. 7, or just want more opportunities to experience the world of Louis Armstrong, The Roosevelt Hotel will hold a pre-show special brunch in the famous Blue Room - where Satchmo himself once performed! On top of delicious brunch fare and fabulous drinks, guests will also enjoy live jazz entertainment in honor of Armstrong’s legendary career and undeniable influence in the world of jazz.
The all-inclusive brunch is $69 per person, plus taxes and gratuities, and features a buffet including classic breakfast fare as well as a few additional treats such as an Omelet Station, a Carved-to-Order Station, Pan Seared Poulet Rouge, NOLA BBQ Shrimp, Boudin Balls, Pecan Tartlets and Chocolate Verrines.

No trip to the theater is complete without a pre-show drink, and the infamous Sazerac Bar in The Roosevelt Hotel is world-renowned for its namesake cocktails and other delicious drinks. In honor of Louis Armstrong, Sazerac Bartender Eric Wicks created a new specialty cocktail for guests and visitors to enjoy during the show’s October run - made specifically with fall in mind.
The Wonderful World features Cathead Satsuma Vodka and Intense Ginger Liqueur, as well as orgeat syrup, lemon juice, and a freshly made strawberry puree. A fruity and fresh sip, perfect to enjoy as New Orleans’ fall season truly begins.
