Ten­nessee Wil­liams Fes­ti­val

Where New Orleans - - CONTENTS -

Read­ing can be fun, Ca­role King, Ste­vie Nicks, John Wa­ters, Chris Rock and 26 other en­ter­tain­ing ideas to en­ter­tain.

"Amer­ica has only three cities,” Ten­nessee Wil­liams fa­mously once quipped. “New York, San Fran­cisco and New Or­leans. Ev­ery­where else is Cleve­land.” So it’s only fit­ting that writers, edi­tors and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als from around the na­tion gather in the city the “A Streetcar Named De­sire” play­wright called his “spir­i­tual home” each March to take part in the an­nual Ten­nessee Wil­liams/New Or­leans Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val. In ad­di­tion to pan­els, dis­cus­sions and read­ings, the fun af­fair fea­tures pro­duc­tions of Wil­liams’ works (“Sweet Bird of Youth,” “The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Any­more”), food and mu­sic events and the can’t-miss Stan­ley and Stella Shout­ing Con­test at Jack­son Square.
