Historic Saenger Theatre Set To Reopen

New Orleans’ historic Saenger Theatre is about to reopen after a 52 million dollar restoration.  Renovations have been underway since early last year, and the city hasn’t let people see what’s going on. The grand unveil is scheduled for Friday morning.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is scheduled to take the stage Friday night.
Hurricane Katrina tore holes in the roof, and flooded the orchestra level seating with 4 feet of water that remained for 2 months.
A Baton Rouge newspaper reports anticipation has been high for the friday reopening.
“It just highlights the fact that New Orleanians are excited about bringing this theatre back. They want to be a part of it.”
- Cindy Connick, executive director of the Canal Street Development Corp.,

The renovated Saenger is reportedly designed to look much the way it did in the 1920′s. The original carpet has been replicated. Nine of the 11 original chandeliers have been re-installed.

David Anderson, president and CEO of ACE Theatrical Group said,
“We want people to come early. We want them to relax and enjoy themselves. The theater is spectacular, and we want people to walk around and look at it.”
