The Book of Mormon musical coming to Saenger Theatre. Broadway in New Orleans has been a big hit at the Mahalia Jackson Theater. Now, the restored Saenger is getting in on the action. The Book of Mormon is scheduled to play at Saenger Theatre, New Orleans LA from October 15 to October 27, 2013. “It’s a great season. It’s a very exciting way to bring the Saenger back into action. It’s been since 2005, so we’re talking about eight years without this magnificent theater,” said David Anderson, the CEO of the Ace Theatrical Group.
In 2012 the theater has been shut down since it flooded during Hurricane Katrina and begin $52 million renovations. The theater is set to reopen late in the summer.
“It will be absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. It will look largely like it did in 1927 when it was built. It will be a total historic restoration
from the stage house forward. So you’ll see the blue sky and the twilight that we saw before,” said Cindy Connick, the executive director of the Canal Street Development Corporation.
