Move It And It's Yours

Friday, April 7th, 2017 at 7:30 PM

"Move It And It's Yours" tells the story of twice-divorced Charlie Ross, a middle-aged trade magazine editor who as a young man had wanted to be a songwriter-performer but years ago had abandoned his dream in exchange for a steady income. Now Charlie is about to embark on a third marriage when, due to unforeseen circumstances, he must get rid of the piano he has owned and played his whole life. Offering the piano for free if someone will move it out of his apartment, he meets a raft of unusual people who unintentionally manage (through song and comedy) to change Charlie's attitude and lead him back to his dream.

Facing the loss of his beloved wife, the mystical songstress Martha LeDoux, the newlywed Dr. Howard Hart tears through the hurricane-ravaged city to free her from the devil and his soul-stealing underwater club, all the while discovering the magic of her hometown. GUMBO is a vibrant take on the Orpheus & Eurydice tale that explores the mythos of Hurricane Katrina through the heart and music of the great city of New Orleans.

Please note that some content in this show should be considered "PG-13" due to strong language.
