New Orleans’s Limited Premiere Engagement Plays

Wednesday, March 14 To Sunday, April 15 at Mahalia Jackson Theater

 

 

New Orleans, LA (February 13, 2012) — Casting has been announced for the New Orleans premiere engagement of Disney’s THE LION KING. New Orleans’ most eagerly awaited stage production ever will leap onto the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts’ stage from Wednesday, March 14 to Sunday, April 15. The press opening night is Friday, March 16 at 8:00 p.m.

The talented cast of more than 40 actors includes a local connection; Maurica Roland (Ensemble/Understudy Nala, Shenzi & Sarabi) is a Pensacola, FL native and graduate of the Louisiana State University music education program. Recently, Roland appeared in American Vybe at Walt Disney World in Orlando and Hairspray First National Tour (swing, u/s Dynamite). She is thrilled to be in New Orleans and close to all her college friends and Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority sisters.

The sardonic and deviously cunning “Scar” is played by J. Anthony Crane. Dionne Randolph is “Mufasa,” the great warrior and ruler of the Pridelands.  Buyi Zama is the wise baboon shaman “Rafiki.” Mark David Kaplan portrays the prim and proper hornbilled bird “Zazu.” Adam Kozlowski is the carefree warthog “Pumbaa” and Nick Cordileone is the wisecracking meerkat “Timon.”  Mufasa’s son, “Simba,” the lion prince born to be king, is played by Jelani Remy and Syndee Winters is the loyal lioness “Nala.”

The three evil hyenas are played by Keith Bennett (“Banzai”), Rashada Dawan (“Shenzi”) and Robbie Swift (“Ed”).  The role of “Young Simba” is alternated between Zavion J. Hill and Adante Power and the role of “Young Nala” is alternated between Sade Phillip-Demorcy and Kailah McFadden.

ABOUT THE LION KING

In its 15th year, THE LION KING remains ascendant, continuing to reign as a cultural phenomenon and one of the most popular stage musicals in the world.  Since its Broadway premiere on November 13, 1997, 19 productions around the globe have been seen by more than 63 million people, grossed over $4.7 billion and have, cumulatively, run a staggering 89 years.  Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions (under the direction of Thomas Schumacher), THE LION KING is the seventh longest-running musical in Broadway history and one of only six productions in theatre history to play for ten years or more both on Broadway and in the West End.  Translated into seven different languages (Japanese, German, Korean, French, Dutch, Mandarin, Spanish), the show has been performed in 14 different countries on five continents.  THE LION KING can currently be seen on Broadway, on stages across North America, and in Tokyo, London’s West End, Hamburg and Madrid.

 

 

THE LION KING won six 1998 Tony Awards®:  Best Musical, Best Scenic Design (Richard Hudson), Best Costume Design (Julie Taymor), Best Lighting Design (Donald Holder), Best Choreography (Garth Fagan) and Best Direction of a Musical, making Taymor the first woman in theatrical history bestowed with the honor.  THE LION KING has also earned more than 70 major arts awards including the 1998 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the 1999 Grammy® for Best Musical Show Album, the 1999 Evening Standard Award for Theatrical Event of the Year and the 1999 Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.

 

On stage, Taymor’s creative vision blends elements of African art and Broadway artisanship to depict anthropomorphic animal characters.  Taymor, along with designer Michael Curry, has created hundreds of  masks and puppets for THE LION KING.  The book has been adapted by Roger Allers, who co-directed The Lion King animated feature, and Irene Mecchi, who co-wrote the film’s screenplay.  Other members of the creative team include:  Steve Canyon Kennedy (sound design), Michael Ward (hair and makeup design), John Stefaniuk (associate director), Marey Griffith (associate choreographer), Clement Ishmael (music supervisor).  Anne Quart serves as associate producer.

 

 

The Broadway score features Elton John and Tim Rice’s music from The Lion King animated film along with three new songs by John and Rice; additional musical material by South African Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin, Julie Taymor and Hans Zimmer; and music from “Rhythm of the Pride Lands,” an album inspired by the original music in the film, written by Lebo M, Mark Mancina and Hans Zimmer.  The resulting sound of THE LION KING is a fusion of Western popular music and the distinctive sounds and rhythms of Africa, ranging from the Academy Award®-winning song “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” to the haunting ballad “Shadowland.”

 Good morning NOLA!  Another beautiful day is in store for the Big Easy today.  The high should reach the upper seventies with plenty of sun and just a little breeze to get us by.  The low tonight will dip just slightly into the fifties for a beautiful evening.  This weekend has been just perfect for any outdoor activities you might have.  I spent the day in Palmer Park yesterday for the Save the CDP Fundraiser. It was a gorgeous day with plenty of great people.  If you didn’t get to come and get a signed copy of my books you are in luck.  I will be back on Jackson Square today at the 1850′s House Store.  If you are out and about stop by and get your signed copy of “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” or “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!   Don’t worry about the rain we won’t see any significant chance of that for about a week.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA!  I’m thinking it’s going to be another great day.  No rain in the forecast for today. Just a little cloudy with our high near the eighty degree mark.  There will be a few isolated thunderstorms in the evening on Thursday but should move out before the weekend parades get here.  Our overnight lows will be in the sixties.  All in all we really can’t complain.  Next week may see us back in the sixties for our daytime temps which is a little more like our usual for this time of year.  What a great Mardi Gras outlook.  I am really enjoying my time by getting out and about and soaking up some vitiamin D.  Even the evenings are wonderful so make the most of this weather. I had a nice evening with friends over at the House Of Blues listening to My Graveyard Jaw and watching a screening of The Cure for the Crash, a feature film by Brian Paul.  You should check both out if you have a chance.  So get up, get moving and I’ll see you in NOLA!

What is crime like in New Orleans, and will it get better?

I’ve heard that crime in New Orleans is absolutely terrible, and that’s the main reason my family wouldn’t want to move there if they had an opportunity to. Will the crime get better? Also, my family has said that they wouldn’t want to move to New Orleans because of the aftermath and effects of Katrina. Is it still that bad?

New Orleans has a high murder rate because drug dealers are killing each other and the still-reduced population caused the rate to skyrocket (rate = population divided by crimes). However, other crime is at or below the average for cities. Use basic common sense + stay away from people who buy/sell/use crack cocaine and your chances of being the victim of anything worse than a parking ticket or hangover are very low.

The city and metro area are still recovering from Katrina, and the process will take more years. Realize that Katrina was the worst natural disaster in US history and turned 90,000 square miles (an area larger than the UK) into a rubbish heap overnight. Fortunately, the historic parts of the city were all built on high ground and didn’t flood. There has also been huge progress in the past 4 years and most of the metro area now looks like Katrina never happened.

There was a fear the "soul" of the city had been destroyed by Katrina, but that has not been the case.

In practical terms, the city & metro area are operating normally. Utilities like electricity/water/phone and city services like police/fire/ems/sanitation were all problematic in 2005-2006 but are back to normal. The area’s entertainment/tourism industry has also recovered.


Bright Lights In The Big Easy

New Orleans has long been a favorite setting for big name producers and newcomers hoping to make theirs big.  The city, the historic French Quarter as well as the surrounding bayou country has so much to offer a production company it is no wonder that some thirty odd movies are scheduled to be filmed here.

 It was awesome to happen on to the filming of the Canal Street car crash scene in the John Cena movie Twelve Rounds during one NOLA visit.  Thanks to a really cool production assistant, a group of us including my nieces and nephews were thrilled to be able to watch up close and personal.

While that was exciting it was even more so when I got an opportunity to actually participate in the new Kate Hudson movie, Earthbound, being filmed in and around the Crescent City.  It is a romantic comedy which includes other names like Gael Garcia Bernal, Alan Dale, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Bates and Treat Williams.  In the film Kate has cancer (she had to lose twenty pounds for the role) Whoopi is God, and Gael is the young doctor that Kate falls for. There is no word yet on when the Nicole Kassell directed flick will hit the theater.

Most young girls at some point entertain thoughts of being in a movie.  My three year old granddaughter wants to be a “moo-moo tar” herself!  I have to admit I was no different, but I had put that behind me a long time ago, probably about the same time I put up my Barbie dolls.  So when a friend who was involved in the project suggested that since I was always in New Orleans anyway I should get involved too. I thought “what the heck”,  never really believing it would happen.

What a surprise when I was contacted the same day to take part as an extra (called “background” in the biz) in a Gala Fund Raiser scene of New Orleans supposedly wealthiest patrons being shot at Oak Alley Plantation.  Oak Alley Plantation, a historic property located on the Mississippi River in Vacherie, Louisiana, is a National Historic Landmark.  For a history lover like me this was going to be way cool, but due to the weather the scene was moved at the last minute. We actually filmed the scene at Gallier Hall on St. Charles Avenue.  

The whole behind the scenes experience from wardrobe and make-up to Star orbit etiquette was a definite eye opener for me.  I will never look at movies or some “Stars” in the same way again. About the only familiar terminology to me was “first team” and “second team”.  I knew what it meant in basketball and sure enough it is the same in movies.  First team is the actual Stars and Second team is the Stand-ins (people who resemble the Stars). 

It will be really interesting to see the finished product and what actually makes it into the film. I think I have a fairly good shot since I was included in most of the shooting that day.  There is nothing like having the “clap board” snapped in front of your face. “Quiet on the set, Rolling, Sound, Background”  – and that was the cue for us extras to start our little pantomime party.

It was a hoot!  So much for my illusions of being transformed into a beautiful glamour goddess, the joke was on me.  Look for really big hair!  (because I’m supposedly really rich!  Who knew big hair and big money were synonymous?!)  It took a little while to get used to people coming up to me and messing with my hair and brushing stuff on my face all day.  Overall I met some really great people and heard some very entertaining stories from the veteran extras about past “background” roles. 

It was a fun new experience but an eighteen hour day in heels, with make-up caked on my face and a teased up ball of hair on my head is not my idea of the glamorous life.  Please don’t misunderstand though, even with the minor disillusionment, aching feet and contacts melted on my eyeballs (the lights are really hot and bright) I would gladly answer the call “background” again!

What is the coolest place to stay on the French Quarter for my honeymoon?

French Quarter Hotel

I don’t want a big corporate hotel, a French Quarter hotel with a balcony, with history?

Congratulations!

Check the Monteleone Hotel, the Royal Sonesta Hotel, and the Royal Orleans Hotel. The Royal Orleans became part of the Omni chain a few years back but retains its pre-chain French Quarter hotel ambience.  The Maison Dupuis is also a great choice for a French Quarter Hotel stay.

Also check www.frenchquarterhotels.com for more non-chain hotels.

Hope you have a great time!

If the Iberville housing development is ever razed, do you think they should rebuild Storyville?

Anyone who lives in the Nola area should know about Storyville. if not, look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storyville

There would be tremendous opposition from the existing downtown merchants to building a new "entertainment district" on the site of the Iberville, and particularly from the ones in the French Quarter. That doesn’t mean they want the Iberville to continue as it currently is, but wouldn’t want the direct competition.

Note that the city considered locating the Arena (the basketball dome next to the Superdome) on the site, but it ended up in its current location because construction costs were much less as the Superdome’s air-conditioning system could be co-used by the Arena.

The city also wanted to sell the Iberville to a developer in 1982. The complex would have been renovated and sold as condos. The city would have earned enough from the sale to make a "profit" after paying to relocate the residents. HUD said no because the city would not own the property "free & clear" until 1989 – 50 year bonds were used to build it in 1939. By 1989 the oil industry depression ended the interest in converting the property. There are reports the buildings are no longer salvageable, but I don’t actually know. Certainly they have not had a major renovation in the 60 years since they were built.

 Good Morning Nola!  I am so glad our weekend is finally here.  I just spent two fun but long days on the set of Looper, a futuristic movie starring Bruce Willis set in the New Orleans CBD.  Iam ready to get back out in the Quarter and enjoy some Mardi gras festivities.  It’s partly cloudy this morning with our high of seventy-five.  There is only a twenty percent chance of rain today and tomorrow.  Monday will bring with it a fifty-fifty chance so I would keep the umbrella handy.  This mild weather sure has the people out and about in the French Quarter in droves.  Parades and normal Quarter fun is on my agenda for the weekend.  There is a strong possibility that I will be catching flying Mardi Gras beads in the near future also.  Well my running buddies are waiting so I need to wrap this up so I can get out there.  Y’all have fun and I hope you catch lots of beads too. 

I’ll see you in NOLA!
