  • Wow! What I liked the most about this theatre was the theater itself. Incredible! While you are inside the theater 🎭 you’ve got the feeling that it’s an open air theater, and you get transported to somewhere in Europe could be Italy of France.. It’s was amazing.

  • You have to love the Saenger! It isn't difficult to get to and there is plenty of parking nearby. It is a really beautiful building. It's odd for a theatre in that it is narrow and deep and the taking is relatively gentle, so if you are at the back of the balcony, you are a *long* way from the stage. The seats are comfortable and the acoustic is pretty good. There are very few poor sightlines. They have a really good mix of shows and put on some fantastic touring Broadway performances. I have honestly enjoyed every one of the many performances I have been to here.

  • Saw an amazing play here, the building is beautiful and the staff are amazing and friendly. The bathroom situation is more limited than the size seems like it should be. The drinks are very nice and the bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly

  • Architecture was impressive with great atmosphere. Like being in a Greek courtyard, under a starry night. Les Miserable was very well performed and with great stage sets. Good security.. But they will take your snacks and bottled water. Must buy their 4$ bottled water.

  • 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!!
