Satchmo at the Waldorf - March 1971. Backstage at the Empire Room of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Louis Armstrong, the greatest trumpet player in the world, sits in his dressing room trying to pull himself together to do one final show. Because as long as they clap, Louis will go out there and play. His mind wanders through the amazing journey of his life and his complex relationship with his manager Joe Glaser. In a tour de force performance, one actor will take you into the minds and hearts of an American musical icon and the man behind the legend. “Offering color, flavor and different perspectives” - LA Times “Fascinating…seamless, and full of surprises” - Chicago Sun Times • Social Media: #ArmstrongAtTheAlley • Recommended for mature audiences • Terry Teachout, a theatre reviewer for the Wall Street Journal, wrote a 2009 biography on Armstrong titled “Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong”. Satchmo at the Waldorf is his first play. For those who enjoyed: George Gershwin Alone
