Tennessee Williams Festival

In case you live outside New Orleans, or under a rock within it, the Tennessee Williams Festival is this week. Taking place downtown in the French Quarter, in and around the Hotel Monteleone, it’s a blast — and this year’s program has some absolute knockouts, including the Melanated Writers Collective performing this Friday night. Tickets are still available, but after Wednesday, you’ll have to get them at the door. I promise: they’re worth it.
