What You'll Get


It's March 1971 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel's Empire Room in New York City. Louis Armstrong, the hottest trumpet player in the world, sits in his dressing room unwinding after one of his final performances. His mind recounts the amazing musical journey that transformed his life, and his complex relationship with his manager Joe Glaser. Acclaimed character actor Barry Shabaka Henley (Collateral, Ali, The Terminal) gives a tour-de-force performance playing both men, taking you into the minds and hearts of both an American musical icon and the man behind the legend. Satchmo at the Waldorf is Wall Street Journal theater critic Terry Teachout's first play, and it makes its Midwest premiere at Chicago's Court Theatre following sold-out engagements off-Broadway.
