Inside The Arts: New Orleans Film Festival, Wadada Leo Smith, Urinetown: The Musical

Oct 10, 2017

This week on Inside the Arts, the New Orleans Film Society is rolling out the red carpet as the 28th annual New Orleans Film Festival gets underway. High profile talent, producers, films and nightly parties are in the mix. Executive director Fallon Young joins us.

Then, we talk with legendary composer /trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith.  He'll perform his Civil Rights masterpiece, Ten Freedom Summers, in concert at Loyola University.

And, "potty talk" takes center stage in a humorous Tony Award winning musical with an off-putting name. The NOLA Project and Theatre UNO present Urinetown.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m., and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
