Ever heard of a pop-up kitchen? Well New Orleans Box Office is a Pop-Up Theatre Box Office!
NOLA has over 30 operating theatre and dance companies in the city and hundreds of theatre artists (over 3,500 people are in the New Orleans Onstage Theatre Facebook Group). In 2017 Actor’s Equity named New Orleans as the
fastest growing theatre city in the United States!
We wanted to create a hub of information on theatre in New Orleans. That hub needs to meet New Orleanians where they live. We pop up at art markets, school markets, festivals, events, cafes, and shops around town promoting NOLA theatre and selling tickets to shows currently playing. We also created this online calendar and forum to distribute information virtually!
We also recently launched NOBO Commons a site for articles on New Orleans performing arts. A diverse group of New Orleans writers contribute to celebrate, analyze, and discuss the art being created in our city. Become a member of our site to see NOBO Commons.
Our goal is to make theatre and performing arts accessible to all New Orleanians.
