Ticket Information


Purchase tickets online through Admission.com

The Satchmo’ Suite is a musical play about the relationship between a modern day black classical Cellist and the 'Father of Jazz' himself, Louis Armstrong. The Cellist, on tour with a classical symphony, summons the ghost of Louis Armstrong to get help with a difficult musical passage from Bach’s Six Suites for Solo Cello. The lives of the major characters intermingle and resonate off each other as issues of hope, courage, family and racism emerge in striking and powerful ways.

An entertaining gift for the holidays!

Behind the Curtain

Böggild and Innis composed nine original jazz songs for The Satchmo’ Suite, which features a cast of five, including a live-three piece orchestra!

From the Director

The Satchmo’ Suite is about the polarities between the head and the heart, the intellect and intuition. Doug and I are thrilled to be doing our jazz musical with the Segal Theatre in one of the world’s greatest jazz and music cities! Key parts of the story happen in Montreal and Louis Armstrong visited the city regularly, so we’re unbelievably excited to stage the show here.” - Hans Böggild

Did You Know?

Louis had many nicknames as a child, all of which referred to the size of his mouth: "Gatemouth," "Dippermouth" and "Satchelmouth." During a visit to Great Britain, the editor of Melody Maker magazine greeted him by saying, "Hello, Satchmo!" Louis loved the new name and adopted it for his own.
