FIRE ON THE BAYOU - On the eve of the first Mardi Gras after Hurricane Katrina, a homeless girl and her young brother wander the streets in search of their kinfolks. They tap dance on street corners to survive. Like a Greek chorus, a band of angels descend to rescue these youths, and ignite FIRE ON THE BAYOU into a mythical journey that will transport audiences to the jazz-filled streets of New Orleans - a colorful, vibrant city where the “Saints Go Marching In,” and culture rises up from the streets. The audience is led on a musical journey seen through the lens of Katrina survivors. FIRE ON THE BAYOU is "One Mardi Gras You Will Never Forget.“
