NEW ORLEANS (press release) –
The cast of the Broadway-bound new musical “A Wonderful World, A New Musical About The Life and Loves of Louis Armstrong” will arrive in New Orleans on Monday, Sept. 18, at 1 p.m. in classic New Orleans style, via second line!

Rampart Street and into the Saenger Theatre to kick off rehearsals for their Broadway-bound show, which premieres here first in the Big Easy. The Saenger Theatre and Broadway in New Orleans presented by Entergy welcome the public to join the second line before joining the cast in the arcade for cocktails and small bites.

The show’s eight performances begin Oct. 1 and run through Oct. 8.
