Step into the Allways Lounge before the show to grab a drink!
Sometimes, the name says it all. Now in its seventh season, New Orleans’ only live, ongoing soap opera is more hilariously histrionic than ever! Join in on the family drama as sisters Chanel and Cartier flounce and fight their way through a maze of outrageous exploits. Every month, a new episode, and “yes, there will always be cocktails!”
“Those resulting laughs are the ultimate barometer of the show’s success as pure, escapist entertainment.”
– The Times-Picayune
“…there’s nothing else quite like it in New Orleans.”
– The Advocate
