Satchmo at the Waldorf extends through November 11

Due to audience demand Satchmo at the Waldorf, by Terry Teachout, directed by Gordon Edelstein, and starring John Douglas Thompson, will extend its run by four performances.

Tickets are now available for shows on Thursday, November 8th at 8 p.m., Friday, November 9th at 8 p.m., Saturday, November 10th at 8 p.m., and Sunday, November 11th at 2 p.m. All seats are $70.

The play was originally slated to close Sunday, November 4. “The audience response to Gordon, Terry and John’s work has been both outstanding and gratifying. We are delighted to be able to feature the skill and craft of these fine theatre artists for another week,” said Managing Director Joshua Borenstein.

Satchmo at the Waldorf has played to capacity audiences and tremendous critical reception. Frank Rizzo of the Hartford Courant described John Douglas Thompson’s performance as “masterful.” Donald Brown of the New Haven Review said Teachout’s script “delivers the goods,” and Kyle Minor of the New Haven Register believes the play is “interesting, instructive and beautifully acted.”
