I received an email from my friend Trina who is appearing in a production of my favorite musical Cabaret in New Orleans the next few weeks. Upon visiting the Gambit website to see the press release, I was pleasantly surprised to see the new layout of the site. Pre-Katrina it was pretty basic, but it looks like they’ve spent some time redesigning things and offering a more interactive layout with “comment here” and “send this article” features. This week’s cover story is about the return of the theatre scene in NOLA, and includes some discussion of the film industry returning there.
Note: if you haven’t already seen Love Song for Bobby Long, go out and rent it for a beautiful depiction of New Orleans on film!
