We've got your weekend: Time is ticking by
Wednesday, November 30/The Orpheum Theater (129 Roosevelt Way): Food can be many things in New Orleans, including inspiration for great art. Well, The Orpheum Theater will be hosting Jambalaya, the Musical, by award-winning creator Nancy Gregory, on November 30 at 8:00 p.m. The new musical is a young man’s ‘coming of age’ story and - most importantly - a story about love between a girl and a boy, a man and his grandson, and a community and its love for its rich heritage and culture. Additional New Orleans performances will take place December 1, 2, 3 and 21, 22 and 23. To purchase tickets, which range in prices, you can click here.

Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3/Music Box Village (4557 N. Rampart): The Music Box Village is in full swing, and they will be seamlessly weaving together the roots-based Cajun music, punk, and experimental sounds of The Lost Bayou Ramblers and the inventive instrumentation of the Music Box Village this Friday and Saturday.

Saturday, December 3/Nola Community-Printshop (1201 Mazant): With the holidays tracking all of us like a fox, it is time to find the gifts that no one will be giving this year. Not because they're ugly or unwanted but because they are rare and handmade. That is what the Nola Community-Printshop is offering with its Holiday Print Sale, which will be taking place on Saturday from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. All work is made at the New Orleans Community Printshop and Darkroom by current members. The works are priced individually and are available in a large range of options including handpulled prints, photographs, cards, calendars, t-shirts, and more. Light refreshments will be available. This event is free and open to the public.
Sunday, December 4/Contemporary Arts Center (900 Camp Street): Time is running out to see time ticking by while sitting at the CAC and watching The Clock. Prospect New Orleans presents Christian Marclay’s internationally acclaimed 24-hour video installation, and December 4 is the last day of the installation. It will be running from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., and remember that Sundays at the CAC for Louisiana residents are free!
