SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF
BY TERRY TEACHOUT
Cast and Crew
Satchmo at the Waldorf
by Terry Teachout
directed by Gordon Edelstein
starring John Douglas Thompson
Louis Armstrong is winding down his career, and in his dressing room he tells it like it was, and is. The great American actor John Douglas Thompson comes to Colorado Springs with exactly the same show that wowed Broadway audiences, giving us the real man behind that amazing horn.
This is a work of fiction, based freely on fact.
The language in Satchmo is salty, emphatic, vigorous and frequently profane.

USA Today on John Douglas Thompson: "Though it would be impossible for any mere mortal to fully capture the spirit and soul of Armstrong's music, it would be hard to imagine another trouper better equipped to give us at least a glimpse of the humanity behind it.”
Arts in LA: "…come face-to-face with the force of nature that is John Douglas Thompson.”
Wall Street Journal: "John Douglas Thompson brings the script to life with a smart, sure performance."
