What happens on the roof of the Monteleone stays on the roof of Monteleone. NFP, The People Say Project, and The Tennessee Williams Festival proudly present “Literary Late Night: New Orleans Nocturnes,” an evening of burlesque and literary perversion. Featuring some of New Orleans’ brightest (if slightly sullied) burlesque talent, cocktails by Hendrick’s Gin, and music by DJ Rik Ducci, New Orleans Nocturnes is an eclectic, totally bananas show revisiting some of William’s classic themes.
Saturday, 03.23 8-10PM
Hotel Monteleone Rooftop/Vieux Carre Room
