Described as “an absorbing and uplifting new play” by the Boston Globe, Terry Teachout’s Satchmo at The Waldorf, makes its debut in Los Angeles this May at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. Running from Tuesday, May 26 through Sunday, June 7 for a limited 15-performance engagement at the Lovelace Theater, Satchmo portrays the racial struggles and musical triumphs of the man who invented jazz, Louis Armstrong.
Starring Obie-winner John Douglas Thompson as Armstrong, Miles Davis and Joe Glaser, this exhilarating one-man show looks to give its audience an insight into the realities that Armstrong faced as he lived through a changing society in the late 60s.
