Salvatore Romano is coming to town!

New Orleans native Bryan Batt, who starred as the closeted art director on Mad Men, will present his one-man show Dear Mr. Williams on May 10 and 11 at the Curtain Call Lounge (527 N. Grand Boulevard) as part of the annual Tennessee Williams Festival.

The play is a coming-of-age story about a gay artist, sex and alcohol, and was inspired by Williams' lesser-known stories and love for his adopted hometown. (As opposed to the city where he spent his youth; Williams was decidedly not a fan. But hey, at least we inspired The Glass Menagerie.)

Batt, who has starred on Broadway in Cats and Sunset Boulevard, has previously performed his play at the New Orleans Tennessee Williams Festival, and in a staged reading in New York.

Tickets for this year's Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis are on sale now. The main stage production, The Night of the Iguana, runs May 9 to 19 at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square).
