Production Description

Casting "The Katrina Comedy Fest" by Rob Florence. Producer states: "In 2006, the mayor of New Orleans proposed celebrating Hurricane Katrina's first anniversary with a fireworks display and comedy hour which were canceled due to public outrage. Could he have meant 'comedy' in the classic sense? Through the words of five New Orleanians, experience the heartbreak, humanity, and yes, comedy of those who rode out the storm. 'The Katrina Comedy Fest' received 'Best of the Festival' and 'Overall Excellence in Production of a Play' honors in the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival and was entered into the Fringe Encore Series at the Lucille Lortel Theatre."
