Major Swelling's Salvation Salve Medicine Show

Shannon Flaherty

Nov. 11 – 15, 2009
New Orleans Fringe Festival
Marigny Theatre (2240 St. Claude Ave.)

A co-production with the Cripple Creek Theatre Co., Major Swelling’s Salvation Salve Medicine Show is a musical about schemer, huckster, and Civil-war veteran, Major Swelling and his traveling troupe rolling through New Orleans to sell their salvation salve – a potion found deep within the swamps of Louisiana that cures anything and everything. When the salve actually heals, and Governor Bobby Jindal shows up to take over the show, a showdown begins between the old way of doing things and the new, progress and stasis, tradition and reform.
