I’m thrilled to announce that Houston’s Alley Theatre, one of America’s finest regional companies, is presenting Satchmo at the Waldorf, my first play, next season. The production will be a remount of the second staging of Satchmo, directed by Gordon Edelstein, which to date has been presented off Broadway and at Shakespeare & Company of Lenox, Mass., New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre, Philadelphia’s Wilma Theater, the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre, and Colorado Springs’ Theatreworks.
Satchmo begins previews in Houston on March 2, 2018, then runs from March 7 through March 25. For more information about the production, go here.
In case it’s slipped your mind, Satchmo at the Waldorf will also be performed this summer by Triangle Productions of Portland, Oregon, opening there on May 4 and running through May 27. For more information about that production, which stars Salim Sanchez, go here.
