Two decades after its triumphant off-Broadway premiere, The Kingfish is back, with a Saturday, Aug. 27 production. The one-man play, written by Larry L. King and Ben Z. Grant, depicts the life and times of famed Louisiana Gov. Huey P. Long at the location he called home in New Orleans – The Roosevelt Hotel.
Doors open at 8 p.m. for the performance, which begins at 8:30 p.m. in the world-famous Blue Room. Featuring actor John “Spud” McConnell, the performance will celebrate what would have been Long’s 118th birthday.
Admission costs $60 per person. For reservations, call The Roosevelt at (504) 335-3138. A special pre-theatre menu will also be available in the Sazerac Restaurant.
