I love this statue and Ignatius! Dave and other frequent visitors (and locals of course) to New Orleans should keep eyes and ears peeled for staged readings of the stage play version of the book 'Confederacy of Dunces,' starring the statue's model, John "Spud" McConnell. The Tennessee Williams Festival is a good place to look; they just presented a reading at Le Chat Noir. It has become a rather cult show in New Orleans, and is well worth the time and money if you can catch it on some local stage.
