Inside The Arts: Jazzy Divas Rock Central City Cabaret; Aladdin In Rivertown; And Harps Swing

Jun 26, 2014

This week on Inside the Arts, we stroll down memory lane as the American Theater Project of New Orleans presents Dryades Street Divas Review: A Cabaret, with a cast representing  artists who worked the "chitlin' circuit" back in the day. Those artists include the likes of Etta James, Billie Holiday, Mahalia Jackson and "Moms" Mabley.

Then, in Kenner, the Rivertown Theater's Patchwork Players open with Aladdin.

And, in the city where jazz was born, harpists gear up for a concert that will make their heavenly instruments swing.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:35 a.m.
