“Jambalaya. Cakes and pies. Costumes and masks. Laughter and song”… The life of Margie O’Dair

Actress, singer, local radio star and French Quarter personality Margie O’Dair has passed away and elicited a nice set of memories on nola.com from friends and family. I saw her perform at Le Petit and in films (one of the few authentic NOLa talents in movies about New Orleans!) and was myself a recipient of her infectious chatty self, either when I talked with her at events or outside her fav coffeehouse in years past; she always seemed to be happy and full of life. Let’s hope Le Petit honors her publicly for her steadfast support and for her many roles there.
