The Old Theater presents: “A Tuff Shuffle – Backstage with Louis Armstrong”

ORIENTAL, NC January 31, 2014 – It was customary for Louis Armstrong to greet fans backstage in his dressing room after each concert.   You would find a cross section of people, ranging from priests and politicians to prostitutes and shoeshine boys, together paying homage to Satchmo.   All were welcomed. On February 8th, actor and playwright Danny Mullen will transport us in space and time.  The place:  Louis Armstrong’s dressing room, just after a concert.   The year:  1957.   Mullen carefully chose the date for the play’s setting.    Armstrong was enraged by the 1957 Little Rock Crisis, in which nine African American students were mistreated and prohibited from entering Little Rock’s Central High School.    This turbulent year sets the stage for Mullen […]
