Literary Late Night: New Orleans Nocturnes


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.

Cultural impresarios NOLAFugees and The People Say Project celebrate the sultrier side of the city’s literary tradition with their all-new Literary Late Night presentation, ”New Orleans Nocturnes,” an hour-long burlesque and variety show. Join them as they explore the Crescent City’s tawdry textual pleasures and arouse the belles-lettres with performances by their chosen provocateurs. Savor and chase it down afterwards with a cocktail party featuring creations by Hendrick’s Gin, and a panoramic view of the city that titillated and inspired so many literary types from the rooftop of the Monteleone.

Featuring performances by  Cherry Brown, Christian Champagne, Clay Mazing, Hip-ocrisy Dance Troupe, KYNT, Sweet Nico, Little Luna, Dennis Monn, Jack Moss, Tori & Ro, The Sister Wives w/Hazel Mae & Bebe Baker, & Nari Tomassetti.
