This exuberant new work featuring a live, six-piece jazz band follows Katrina, a young girl from New Orleans forced to face the powerful hurricane that shares her name. Separated from her beloved father during the storm, Katrina must journey to safety with only ghosts, sweet N’awlins music and her own bravery as companions. Despite enormous obstacles, Katrina is determined to reclaim her name and recover the magic and fire that lie within the city and herself. With musicians serving as both bystanders to catastrophe and heralds of hope, KATRINA: THE GIRL WHO WANTED HER NAME BACK celebrates the indomitable spirit of one of America’s most historical cities.
