Healing Power of Theatre
Daddycatcher and the Big Man attended We are the Song: After the Storm at Joe’s Pub last night. The evening was a benefit for the After the Storm Foundation, established to offer assistance and support to the youth of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
The organization’s main project is a documentary that follows the founders of the group as they put on a local production of the musical Once on this Island starring the youth of New Orleans.
The Big Man’s best friend has been heavily involved with the organization and we have attended most all of the events raising money to get the documentary released.
Visit the foundations site and check the video below. If you are a fellow blogger, Daddycatcher urges you to check it out and spread the word.
After 4 years, New Orleans seems to have become a forgotten tragedy and the city is nowhere near to being repaired.
