The classic pirate-adventure tale comes to new life in NOMA’s expanded Besthoff Sculpture Garden as the NOLA Project theater company presents Treasure Island. This world-premiere comic adaptation, penned by NOLA Project founders A.J. Allegra, James Bartelle, and Alex Martinez Wallace—and inspired by the garden’s scenic waterfront amphitheater—will blend story with sea shanties as we follow Long John Silver and his crew to Skull Island on a search for the notorious Captain Flint’s buried treasure. A 21st-century update to the epic adventure novel, Treasure Island is sure to enamor boys, girls, young, old, and is certain bring out the inner-pirate in every New Orleanian.
