Head back to the red light district of 1917 New Orleans for a discussion of the 2013 York Mainstage production of the jazz-infused musical STORYVILLE, with music and lyrics by Mildred Kayden and book by Ed Bullins. York's James Morgan and theatre historian Charles Wright once again lead a panel of special guests that will include director Bill Castellino, music director William Foster McDaniel, choreographer Mercedes Ellington, and cast members D.C. Anderson, Karen Burthwright, Kyle Robert Carter, Ernestine Jackson, Leajato Robinson, Carl Wallnau, Debra Walton, and Zakiya Young.

The time, Mardi Gras; the place, Storyville—the red light district, two blocks from the French Quarter. Saloons, gambling joints, brothels, and pervasive political corruption set the scene for a new kind of music. People fell in love, a world disappeared, and the music moved upriver.
