Nominated for Four Tony Awards in 2015

Lisa D’Amour, a fifth-generation New Orleans native, creates an intimate perspective on The Big Easy and its outcasts. In the parking lot of the Hummingbird Motel, friends gather to pay their last respects to Miss Ruby, an iconic burlesque queen. Echoing the spontaneity and rich texture of jazz, this gritty comedy celebrates unpolished New Orleans and the colorful, fractured characters that define the city’s spirit.
