The Asian American Resource Center and Color Arc Productions will present a live, in-person work-in-progress concert reading of Romeo and Katrina, a musical set four years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans.

This musical crosses the Mississippi River to bridge two lovers from Westbank and Eastbank New Orleans: Romeo Tran, a Vietnamese American mechanic, college dropout, and son of refugees; and Katrina "Trina" Batiste, a dental student, debutante, and daughter of “bougie” Black socialites.

Romeo and Trina's relationship grows amidst the backdrop of New Orleans’ post-Katrina recovery and the Saints’ storied ascent to Super Bowl glory. With a musical score inspired by New Orleans jazz and pop music from the early 2000s, Romeo and Katrina digs deep into love and loyalty, family and friendship, community and crisis, and recovery and renewal.
