  • Wow! Walking into the Saenger is quite literally like walking back in time. It is evident that each and every detail was checked under a magnifying glass before reopening after falling victim to hurricane Katrina. It took a while but my goodness, what an amazing job! Our city is very fortunate to have the Saenger back. I attended a concert there not too long ago. I was impressed by the service as well. Very different from any other venue Ive been to in NOLA. I love that they offer champagne and wine by the bottle, have a wine bar, and offer an array of other concessions at a decent price. Overall, outstanding! Had no idea what to expect and I am beyond satisfied!!

  • Went to the Maxwell concert here tonight. Everything was great, from the people checking tickets to the bar tenders. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Troy is, hands down, the best bartender in the theater. I enjoy every experience I have here. I will always be a return visitor of The Saenger Theater.

  • Pretty venue. Nice size to maximize seating and have good views from all seats. Bass was a bit to high and cancelled out vocalist at times. Lights were pretty and well-timed. Drinks are very expensive, as one would expect from this type of venue. Seats were comfortable for 2 hour concert. Plenty of parking nearby, but the venue itself does not have parking.

  • The Saenger Theatre is absolutely stunning and filled with many intricate details. The staff were great as well. My problem is how things were handled during the Maxwell show. I arrived an hour early to get seated. You would think that by showtime, everyone would have been seated already. But nope, approximately half the guests arrived after the start time. I missed visuals on 90% of the opening performance due to people being seated. The aisle was full nonstop and my view was blocked. It was very frustrating. When things finally calmed down, the opening performance was getting ready to end. Fast forward to Maxwell’s performance. People were so busy getting up, walking out and walking back in that I have a hard time believing any of those people actually came to see the show. I’ve never been to a theatre that allowed people to move around so much. I understand a musical performance is different from a play, but there should be some basic rules in place to prevent the frustration that I experienced. I’ll have to think long and hard before attending another show at the Saenger.

  • I love the Saenger Theatre. It is a small, intimate theatre. I personally prefer to be seated in the balcony area. The theatre is absolutely beautiful inside. It feels like you are seated in an old Grecian courtyard. They even have stars twinkling in the ceiling. The acoustics are wonderful. I have seen many plays and/or musicals preformed there. I highly recommend this theatre.
