Summary

New Orleans, 1917: Something happened that changed the American Songbook forever. The time, Mardi Gras; the place, Storyville-two blocks from the French Quarter. Saloons, gambling joints and brothels set the scene for a new kind of music. Some say it was the beginning of jazz. People fell in love, a world disappeared, and the music moved upriver.

Directed by BILL CASTELLINO with choreography by MERCEDES ELLINGTON, Storyville is the tale of what happened in that red light district, allowing jazz to become one of America's gifts to the world. Written by playwright ED BULLINS (The Taking of Miss Janie-Obie, Drama Desk Award; What the Winesellers Buy) with music and lyrics by MILDRED KAYDEN (Ionescopade, Call the Children Home) and musical direction by WILLIAM FOSTER McDANIEL.
