Story | Dec 15, 2014 | 8:48 AMEarly on in Lisa D'Amour's New Orleans-set play, "Airline Highway," a character is asked whether he has ever been to Jazz Fest, a big-time tourist attraction for the city. After pondering for a moment, he admits that he hasn't, but he thinks he delivered port-a-potties there once. Taking place in the closed-off parking lot of the long-decaying Hummingbird Motel, brilliantly realized by designer Scott Pask in a nearly unimprovable Steppenwolf Theatre Company production directed by Joe Mantello, D'Amour's deep and decidedly soulful work takes us convincingly into the world of the "real" New Orleans. These are the strippers, hookers and party-animal bartenders who have made an everyday pursuit of the search for what Miss Ruby, their dying substitute mother, calls "ecstatic experience."
