Vieux Carré is a rarely done Tennessee Williams piece that is an autobiographical play about the act of creating. It describes his first year in New Orleans and the people he met living in a boarding house. He subsequently used their personalities to form the archetypes that are found throughout the rest of his work.
The production required original compositions, actors singing live and found historical music to bridge the scenes and to provide dramatic underscoring.
All of the cues were built in Logic and Ableton Live and played back by QLab.
