New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

The NOLA Project returns to the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden for yet another crowd-pleasing outdoor theatrical production in partnership with NOMA. The Henchman: A Shakespeare Story, an imagined sequel by playwright Michael Aaron Santos to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, reveals the true story of Jacob, the little changeling boy who Oberon and Titania quarreled over many years ago. Unexpectedly learning that he the long-lost son of the King of India, Jacob discovers he must now flee his fairy-world homestead to escape the pursuit of Esau, Jacob’s warmongering brother, who is hellbent on dispatching Jacob, and claiming the throne. Oberon and Titania are forced to send Jacob with his faithful friend Puck to Greece to enlist the aid of Theseus and Hippolyta in an adventurous comedic sequel to the Bard’s timeless tale. The Henchman will be performed for twelve nights at 7 pm on the following dates: May 8, 9 , 10, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19, 22, 23, 24 and 26. To purchase tickets visit The NOLA Project website.
