Spend an Intimate Evening with Satchmo at the Alley Theater

Be sure to see Satchmo at the Waldorf, the stunning new theatrical show that takes you behind the scenes of Louis Armstrong’s final performance. With an intimate narrative that explores the inner world of this groundbreaking artist, you won’t want to miss this critically-acclaimed production playing at the Alley Theatre.

Set in the backstage area at the Empire Room of New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel, this play invites audiences to travel back to March 1971, when Louis Armstrong played his final show. Reminisce with Armstrong, the greatest trumpet player in the world, as he sits in his dressing room and lets his mind wander through the amazing journey of his life and his complex relationship with his manager Joe Glaser.

The plot revolves around Armstrong’s inner struggles as he tries to pull himself together to do one final show—because as long as they clap, Louis will go out there and play. With a tour de force performance, actor Jerome Preston Bates journeys into the mind and heart of an American musical genius and the man behind the legend. It’s a striking and entertaining production, so make sure you see the show at the Alley Theater!
