Satchmo at the Waldorf is a new one-man play by Terry Teachout. It runs at Shakespeare and Company’s Tina Packer Playhouse through September 16th.
The play takes us to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in March of 1971 as jazz-great, Louis Armstrong, prepares for what will be his last performance. The production is directed by Gordon Edelstein, the award-winning Artistic Director of the Long Wharf Theatre, and stars OBIE Award winning actor, John Douglas Thompson.
We are joined now by Terry Teachout and John Douglas Thompson.
