Satchmo At The Waldorf On Broadway
Terry Teachout's one-actor, one act play, Satchmo At The Waldorf, is coming to Broadway, opening on March 4. Go see it if you have the chance.
In October 2012 we saw Satchmo at the Long Wharf Theater in New Haven and it was a memorable experience. John Douglas Thompson (seen above) is stunning as Louis Armstrong, his manager Joe Glaser and, briefly, Miles Davis. Here's what THC wrote at the time about the play.
THC also wrote about Pops, Teachout's biography of Armstrong, in this post.
