The Lion in Winter tells the scandalous, dramatic, and often bitingly funny tale of King Henry, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, their plotting and bickering sons, an innocent young mistress, and the sexy and mysterious young King of France. Written by James Goldman, this Tony-award winning play was adapted into an Academy-award winning film starring Katharine Hepburn, Peter O'Toole, and Anthony Hopkins. Most recently, it serves as the inspiration and basis for the successful Emmy nominated TV show 'Empire'.
See 'Em On Stage is a theatrical assemblage combining the talents of veteran New Orleans' performers and backstage professionals into a company which focuses on bringing regional premieres, rarely-performed, and original works to local audiences.
