Airline Highway Summary

Manhattan Theatre Club presents the Steppenwolf world premiere of Airline Highway.

In the parking lot of The Hummingbird, a once-glamorous motel on New Orleans’s infamous Airline Highway, a group of friends gather. A rag-tag collection of strippers, hustlers and philosophers have come together to celebrate the life of the iconic burlesque performer Miss Ruby. The party rages through the night as old friends resurface to pay their respects. A world premiere written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Lisa D’Amour (Detroit) and directed by two-time Tony ® winner Joe Mantello (Casa Valentina, Take Me Out), Airline Highway is a boisterous and moving ode to the outcasts who make life a little more interesting.

Airline Highway Cast Members:

Carolyn Braver, K. Todd Freeman, Scott Jaeck, Ken Marks, Caroline Neff, Tim Edward Rhoze, Judith Roberts, Joe Tippett, Julie White, Todd d’Amour, Shannon Eagen, Venida Evans, Joe Forbrich, Leslie Hendrix, Sekou Laidlow and Toni Martin
