Actor, director Quentin Tarantino to lead 2014 Krewe of Orpheus

NEW ORLEANS - Actor, director Quentin Tarantino will reign as the Krewe of Orpheus' 2014 Celebrity Monarch.

Tarantino will lead the 27 float procession, themed "The Enchanted World," on Lundi Gras — Monday, March 3 — on the eve of Mardi Gras.

Following the parade, the krewe's more than 1,300 members, will host its black-tie party Orpheuscapade inside the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center that will also feature Cheap Trick, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, The Party Crashers, Karma and Elizabeth Lyons.

Orpheus, one of the city's super krewes, was founded in 1993 by Captain Sonny Borey and Harry Connick Jr.

Last year, actors Gary Sinise and Mariska Hargitay joined New Orleans musicians Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews and Connick as riders in the parade.
