The Plaza Theater

Terry loves Cajun music. We have learned a number of the dance moves which can keep us hopping and swinging our hips to the rhythmic Cajun beat. She managed to get tickets to see BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucett at the Plaza Theater (425 North Bumby Avenue). This sketch is of the opening act that played before BeauSoleil took to the stage. They were playing when we
entered and believe it or not I never wrote down the bands name. So if you recognize this group, could you give me a shout out? They were a high energy group and they were a blast to draw.
The Plaza Theater is a great venue. While waiting outside I usually stand and watch the Ballet lessons being offered at the Russian Ballet school right next door. The school had large plate glass windows making it easy to watch as the dancers stretch and pleat. The theater space inside the Plaza is intimate and warm. While I was doing this sketch, Patricia Charpentier, introduced herself. She runs a writing workshop called "Writing your Life". I later contacted her and arranged to sketch one of these classes.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
