A Super Bowl victory gave a local Saints fan the perfect ending he needed for a play that salutes the Who Dats
"Ain't Dat Super!" sounds like the perfect way to kick off the season for our World Champion New Orleans Saints.
The combination tailgate party and theatrical comedy on Labor Day weekend is sure to get fans primed for a Saints' victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 9.
"People have no idea what's going to hit them when they go see it, " writer Steven Scaffidi says. "It's going to be crazy."
"Ain't Dat Super!" will have performances Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. Before each performance, a giant tailgate party in the parking lot -- complete with food from Deanie's, beer, mixed drinks and live music -- will get people in the mood to laugh, groan and reminisce as they relive the Saints' 44-year journey to the Super Bowl.
"This is not your regular play, " Scaffidi says. "I expect people to show up in their Saints jerseys. I want the audience to feel like they're walking into the Dome when they go into the theater."
Scaffidi wrote the play and then came up with the tailgating idea.
"I think I'd had a few margaritas when I had this vision of a tailgate party, " he says.
It seems like a brilliant vision.
