Attraction details
Owner description: Originally built in 1927, the Saenger Theatre was designed to reflect a magnificent 15th century Italian courtyard and gardens, with a starlit evening sky ceiling, arched surroundings, statuary, columns and decorative moldings. In January 2012, the City of New Orleans, Canal Street Development Corporation (CSDC) and ACE Theatrical Group formed a public-private partnership to carry out a $52 million restoration project after the iconic theatre was severely damaged during Hurricane Katrina. The Saenger Theatre reopened in fall 2013, authentically restored to the finest level of detail, with state-of-the-art technological improvements and updated first-class amenities. The theatre hosts a wide variety of performing arts attractions including live theater, comedy shows and musical acts. The Saenger Theatre is located at the corner of Canal and North Rampart streets in downtown New Orleans and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The renovations are very nice on the Saenger Theatre. I visit often for the Broadway in New Orleans season. The seats are still fairly old fashion but the renovation was very nice and I'm glad it is open again. Sometimes you forget and think you are in New York City!

This is arguably the best Theater in the South. It is such a nice place to see a concert, ballet, orchestra, or play. Truly historic events have happened here inside this theater over the years.

The renovation is fantastic. My wife and I saw two shows in this venue. Excellent sound, lights and show selection available via the Saenger. It is unlikely that I would go to any other venue in the New Orleans Metro for top of the line Broadway touring company productions.
