Until August 3rd, Satchmo at The Waldorf will be playing at the Westside Theatre Upstairs in New York City.

Set in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1971, the miraculous Louis Armstrong relives the story of how he came to be one of the most, if not the most famous jazz musician of all time.

Satchmo (Louis Armstrong) has just played one of the last performances of his illustrious career and backstage is where we hear the story of his love-affair with jazz and the long road he took with his manager Joe Glaser in an era of social controversies.

Previously sold-out at the Long Wharf Theatre and the Shakespeare Company, this exciting and beautifully crafted musical features John Douglas Thompson of The Emperor Jones fame.

The performance is directed by Gordon Edelstein of The Road to Mecca and the script is written by Terry Teachout of Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong.

Why not chill out in the Millennium Broadway Hotel New York after the show and relive the story of Armstrong’s struggles and successes?
