Broadway actor and "Mad Men" star Bryan Batt will offer a performance of his one-man show to benefit the New Orleans theatre Le Petit Théâtre duVieux Carré.
Entitled Batt on a Hot Tin Roof, the April 11 fundraiser will be held at that Louisiana venue. Show time is 7 PM.

In a statement Batt said, "Le Petit Theatre introduced me to my love of the theatre. I will do whatever is in my power to save this 93-year-old landmark that sits on the corner of Jackson Square."

New Orleans resident Bryan Batt — most recently on Broadway in the revival of La Cage aux Folles — has also been seen on The Great White Way as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast; Monty, the disco DJ, in Saturday Night Fever; the Cat in the Hat in Seussical the Musical; and Sir Percy in Frank Wildhorn's The Scarlet Pimpernel. He also had principal roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Starlight Express and Cats. The actor-singer-dancer also played Joe Gillis opposite Betty Buckley's Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard and has appeared Off-Broadway in Forbidden Broadway and Jeffrey.

A special post-concert party hosted by Batt will be available to those who purchase tickets at the $100 level.

The 93-year-old Le Petit Théâtre is located at 616 St. Peter Street on the corner of Jackson Square in New Orleans. For tickets, priced $20-$100, call (504) 522-2081 or visit www.LePetitTheatre.com.
