Anika Noni Rose

From our friends at Round House Theatre...

We’re celebrating the arrival of new Producing Artistic Director (and New Orleans native) Ryan Rilette in grand style at our annual gala on Monday, April 29th at 6:00 PM. The Bayou Bash will be held at the beautiful new Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club, located on Wisconsin Avenue in the historic Bethesda Theatre, where you'll enjoy fine Cajun Cuisine during a seated dinner.

Fresh from a concert appearance at Lincoln Center, Tony Award-winning star of stage (Caroline, or Change) and screen (Dreamgirls,) Anika Noni Rose will entertain you as she performs Jazz and Broadway classics. Honorary Chair (and another New Orleans transplant) Cokie Roberts will emcee the evening.

You'll be able to bid on some amazing trips and items in our live and silent auctions. Purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to win a curated wine cellar worth almost $1,000. Sponsorships are now available: Call (240) 644-1403. $175 single tickets will go on sale on April 13 if availability exists.

Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club menu includes: Salmon roulettes with horseradish; Avocado and prawn profiteroles; Deviled goats cheese on chive bread; Nicoise Salad; Choice of Blackened Chicken Breast, Yellow fin Tuna, or Sirloin Steak; and Chocolate and Pecan Tart for dessert!
