Marking the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Tony Award-winning actress LaChanze (The Color Purple) stars in a reprise of Swimming Upstream, the stories of 16 women who survived the storm and flooding. Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) and Ashe Cultural Arts Center director Carol Bebelle collaborated with the survivors to create the piece. Tickets $36.35-$63.10 (including fees).
