Bayou Boogaloo returns to New Orleans for the 1st time since 2019; here's what to expect

Today on Louisiana Considered, we hear about the return of the Bayou Boogaloo coming this weekend. Then, we learn about the NOLA Project’s world premiere of Treasure Island.

The Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo, a beloved New Orleans neighborhood festival, is making a comeback for the first time since 2019.

Jared Zeller, founder, and president of Friends of Bayou St. John and executive producer of Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo, tells us more about the weekend of events.

A 21st century adaptation of Treasure Island by the NOLA Project brings pirates to the Besthoff Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Co-artistic director A.J. Allegra tells us how ensemble members adapted Robert Louis Stevenson’s work for the new performance.
