Le Petit Theatre is celebrating Tennessee Williams with the New Orleans premiere of Baby Doll, based on the one-act play “27 Wagons Full of Cotton,” and the screenplay for the 1956 film. Baby Doll is a dark comedy set in the sweltering summer heat of 1950s Mississippi that explores the desires, desperation and prejudices of two rival cotton gin owners and their attempts to seduce a young bride after a suspected act of arson. Audiences will experience the journey of Baby Doll Meighan as she struggles to find her voice while delaying the sexual advances of her overbearing husband.

Performance dates of Baby Doll are March 15-31, 2019 at Le Petit Theatre, 616 St. Peter St. New Orleans, LA 70116. Subscriptions and single tickets are available weekdays from 12 – 5 pm at the Box Office (504) 522-2081 or online anytime at
