Edward R Cox

Set Designer

A Native New Orleanian with 60 years in the entertainment biz, filming lots of movies/TV, reoccurring work and positions in the Disney Company, doing lots of theater here and across the country and making tons of gorgeous sets and costume stuff for Theater, Ballet, Carnival/Mardi Gras, and even painting and designing Carnival Floats in his "spare time". Last seen onstage here at Rivertown as Belle's Father Maurice in 'Disney's Beauty and the Beast", Edward R. has continuously designed and created shows here since the early beginnings of Kenner Little Theater, with some of his more recent shows being Ricky Graham's "Gone Pecans", "Disney's Mary Poppins Jr.", 'Seussical", "Frozen Jr.", 'Charlie Brown", two editions of the "Junie B. Jones" shows among a host of others. And now that Carnival is here, you may recognize him as Grand Marshal Marty Graw, Official Culture Bearer for the City of New Orleans, assisting calling parades at Gallier Hall/Live WWL Carnival Broadcasts/numerous Krewe events throughout the city as well as his work with his Simply Stunning Designs-NOLA design company. Both Grand Marshal Marty Graw and Simply Stunning Designs - NOLA can be found on Facebook for lots of information.

This production of "Forum" is sure to have everyone howling in the aisles, as is said at the top of the show- 

"We shall employ every device we know in our desire to divert you."
