Curry World Premiere Features Katrina Connection | May 13-18

“This was the first Mardi Gras after Katrina struck in August 2005,” Curry notes. “Preceding this day, there was a great deal of discussion whether or not there should even be a celebration of this sort just six months after the disaster, but as one native New Orleanian memorably put it, ‘We need this Mardi Gras for us. We need it to help heal us.’”
