Karen Akers in New Orleans

November 30, 2007

Karen Akers' Interesting article from the New Orleans Times-Picayune about Karen Akers and her new Jule Styne show, currently at Le Chat Noir.  “No time restraints or interfering publicists for Akers. She talks enthusiastically about whatever interests her: the brilliant young conductor Gustavo Dudamel, who conducted the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela at Carnegie Hall recently (“He is pure music; brilliant. His hands literally translate what we’re hearing and watching, somehow”), the Master Class she’ll teach for the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts while here; and why she doesn’t believe in perfection. ”

A mention in Liz Smith’s column.
