NEW ORLEANS, LA – TOMORROW at 10:30 a.m., Mayor Mitch Landrieu, City and State Officials, Canal Street Development Corporation, and ACE Theatrical Group will celebrate the reopening of the historic Saenger Theatre at 1111 Canal Street following a $52 million restoration. The building was significantly damaged by Hurricane Katrina and has since been the focus of complex redevelopment through a public-private partnership between the City of New Orleans, Canal Street Development Corporation, and ACE Theatrical Group.
Built in 1927 by noted New Orleans architect Emile Weil, the Saenger Theatre is a remarkable example of Italian Renaissance architecture and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Saenger Theatre has been completely restored to its original 1927 design and includes state-of-the-art features and expanded stage house, allowing for larger productions and a wide range of programs.
