Playwright Terry Teachout (also lead drama critic for The Wall Street Journal) and actor John Douglas Thompson discuss Teachout’s new play, Satchmo at The Waldorf about the last years of jazz legend Louis Armstrong, in which, The New York Times tells us, “John Douglas Thompson vividly resurrects Armstrong…By the show’s end, you sense the profound fortitude that lay beneath the avuncular surface of this giant, and you are newly appreciative of his singular place in history.”
