A smash off-Broadway hit, The Piano Teacher tells the haunting tale of the sweetly maternal Mrs. K, a piano teacher whose past may be much darker than her cookie-chomping demeanor reveals. Penned by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize recipient Julia Cho, directed by Mark Routhier, and performed by a collection of top local and national talent, The Piano Teacher presents audiences with a riveting amalgam of suspense and storytelling prowess.

To learn a new style, take in a performance, apply to a festival, or learn how to pitch one's work, a comic need only spend some time at La Nuit Comedy Theater. La Nuit not only houses a ComedySportz training center and troupe, but runs its own, unaffiliated conservatory, whose curriculum includes improv and writing. The laughter hub's blog tracks the shows that cycle past the stage's chalkboard wall, along with the workshops, open mic nights, and festivals that help launch NOLA comics toward their goals. Two full-service bars and private comedy shows help make events–from birthdays to bachelor parties to Flat Earth Society meetings–more memorable.

A name like Crazy Dave's Daiquiri Bar and Grill carries with it certain expectations. One wouldn’t be surprised, for example, to hear that raucous crowds regularly descend on the bar to cheer for their favorite sports teams. Nor would it seem strange to spot a funky band or a karaoke diva on the restaurant’s stage. There is one thing that Crazy Dave’s takes seriously, however: its daiquiris. Twelve flavors of daiquiris blend into 28 combinations with whimsical names such as the Flamingo—strawberry and piña colada—and the Mr. Wonderful—white russian, strawberry, and amaretto. The grill offers a hot and spicy counterpoint to the blended drinks’ chill with its Southern-style po’ boys and seafood. All entrees come with fries or beer-battered onion rings, which double as lifesavers in the event that someone falls into a gallon-size jug of daiquiri.

For more than fifty years, the acclaimed Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre has brought classical and contemporary dance to the delta. Each season includes productions from their local company and traveling troupes, ensuring an artistically eclectic mix of shows that might see Cinderella hosted alongside a modern premiere. An annual staging of The Nutcracker – A Tale from the Bayou puts a local spin on a holiday favorite by transporting the timeless fairy tale to 19th century Louisiana, an era when the state was known for its large population of wooden soldiers.
