BRYAN BATT'S POPULAR ONE-MAN SHOW TO BENEFIT LE PETIT THEATRE AND THE FORUM FOR EQUALITY

"BATT ON A HOT TIN ROOF"

Sunday, March 30 @ 7 p.m.

Tickets:  $30, $40, $50

http://www.lepetittheatre.com/;  504-522-2081

Broadway, TV , Film actor and proud native New Orleanian Bryan Batt brings his world renown one-man show, "BATT ON A HOT TIN ROOF" back home to Le Petit Theatre as a benefit for the theatre and The Forum For Equality for one show only, on Sunday March 30th at 7 p.m.

Batt, a member of the boards of both Le Petit Theatre and The Forum for Equality, has performed the show around the world since its original performance as a post-Katrina benefit.

"Audiences from New York to Los Angeles to London and Australia have enjoyed the show and it's been a lot of fun sharing the songs and the music.  It's great to perform again at Le Petit for two wonderful causes - Le Petit Theatre and The Forum for Equality."

Batt originated the show in 2005 right after Katrina. He was asked by then proprietor of Le Chat Noir, Barbara Motley, to put together a benefit for the displaced actors, and although a veteran of 9 Broadway and many off -Broadway shows, he had never done a one-man cabaret. The show has drawn crowds and rave reviews ever since. 

"There are triple-threat stars, and then there's Bryan Batt. He sings. He dances. He acts. And he's one of the most brilliantly funny comedians on Broadway today," wrote Jena Tesse Fox, BroadwayWorld.com

"His delightful patter in the 70-minute set includes story/song/story/song in a rapid fire delivery that is warm, humorous and at times quite touching," wrote Don Grigware of BroadwayWorld.com.

Ticket prices range from $30 - $50 and may be purchased online at http://www.lepetittheatre.com/ or by visiting or calling the theatre's box office at 504-522-2081 between 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Also coming up at Le Petit Theatre:  Chita Rivera, April 19, Death of a Salesman, May 9 - 24 and Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, July 11 - 26.
