GaffneyLewis is proud to be the Production Sponsor of PURE Theatre’s virtual production of, “Satchmo at the Waldorf,” streaming on demand from December 17 through January 2.
It’s 1971, and the greatest trumpet player in the world has just finished a set at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Now at the end of his career, Louis Armstrong reflects back on his life and the ever-evolving struggle to live with dignity as a Black musician in a White world. Based on the 2009 biography written by playwright Terry Teachout, Satchmo at the Waldorf is an intimate exploration of Armstrong’s life, legacy, and—above all—jazz.
Since 2003, the ensemble actors of Charleston’s acclaimed PURE Theatre have built a solid reputation for artistic excellence in provocative contemporary theatre. The 20 professional actors comprising the Core Ensemble are the soul of PURE’s work. Serving a sophisticated and diverse audience with a taste for new work, PURE presents a compelling six-play season between August and June. Endeavoring annually to outdo what was accomplished in years past, PURE continually makes three promises to its audience:
- To always tell a story worth listening to
- To only pursue excellence
- To always gift the audience something to talk about
The company has been lauded for coupling artistic risk-taking with a passionate commitment to addressing the important and often hilarious challenges of being human in the world today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
