Saenger Theatre Reopens In New Orleans!

Eight years ago, Hurricane Katrina and massive flooding spurred by broken levees heavily damaged the historic Saenger Theatre. On Friday, the theatre reopened for business following a $52 million renovation that restored the 86-year-old ornate movie theatre into what now hosts stage productions and live music concerts. Hooray! Mayor Mitch Landrieu, elected officials and investors who partnered to bring the restoration to fruition stood on the newly renovated stage to celebrate the theatre’s formal reopening. Designers returned the theatre to its 1927 grandeur with a historically replicated carpet, original chandeliers, and a historically accurate paint scheme.
