The Palanquin Diaries is a brand new Rock/Burlesque musical. Somebody has killed the Mardi Gras Queen. Everybody had a reason to...she was vicious, powerful and seductive. Was it the prophetic Bead Lady, roaming the Quarter peddling incantations? Or was it the mysterious Snake Girls? The Madame Fleur du Jour and her prostitute daughter? Explore the darker side of New Orleans with exotic Burlesque performances, song & dance in a Hard Rock Spectacular. The Palanquin Diaries: Confessions of a Mardi Gras Queen is the inaugural production of the Backyard Ballroom, a new performance space in the Bywater. Located at 3519 St. Claude Avenue between Gallier and Congress Streets.
