The Stage Door Canteen at The National WWII Museum

They called him "The Wildest" and "The King of Swing." His band and his stage shows were like no others. And, now, the Stage Door Canteen brings it all back in a new original show celebrating a unique New Orleans talent who made an incomparable contribution to popular music and stagecraft. "Jump, Jive & Wail" features a spectacular cast of ten who bring to life these legendary songs, musicians, vocals and dance, with the non-stop energy that kept audiences cheering from New Orleans to New York, from Las Vegas to network television. Enjoy such timeless Prima classics as Sing! Sing! Sing!, Just A Gigolo, Oh Marie, That Old Black Magic, and Basin Street Blues. Add spectacular dining by Chef John Besh and the American Sector restaurant for the ultimate experience! Advance ticket purchase or reservations are recommended.
