Holly Ladner

DAY 038 Holly Ladner photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).

I’ve lived here 13 years; I came after Katrina doing Americorps with Habitat. I knew of the Hall but it was this mystery place set off the road. The first time I came was for the burlesque show and I liked how intimate it was and underground. It’s a cool space. It used to be really expensive for us because we were in our twenties and we couldn’t afford to come to shows here. The shows were $40 and $50 shows. The bigger events were $100. I think having the Tarts and Tramps fundraiser helped expose the Hall to a population that wouldn’t normally have been going.
