Nine Lives, Colman deKay and Paul Sanchez’s adaption of the bestselling non-fiction book by Dan Baum, follows nine New Orleanians through the years between Hurricane Betsy in 1965 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. As joyous, eccentric, tragic and hopeful as the city that inspired them, the songs range from Fats Domino-tinged rock & roll to traditional jazz, blues, Mardi Gras Indian chants, chamber music, soul, brass band, and hip-hop.

The inspiring story is brought to life by renowned singer-songwriter Paul Sanchez, Tony Award-winning actor Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd, Assassins), author Dan Baum, and musician Arsene Delay. Following sold-out performances at the New Orleans Jazz Fest, this powerful adaptation destined for Broadway is not to be missed.
