Saenger Theatre Forced to Cancel All Upcoming ‘Wicked’ Performances Due To Hard Rock Collapse

On Saturday morning the Hard Rock Hotel suffered total structural damaged and collapsed onto North Rampart and Canal Street. The collapse has caused extensive damage to the area and claimed the lives of three construction workers who were working on-site during the collapse. 

The city of New Orleans has done a fantastic job securing the scene and making sure no secondary collapse happens within the area. Although the initial danger is out of the way, the Hard Rock’s neighbor, the historic Saenger Theatre has unfortunately canceled all upcoming performances of “Wicked” until the building is 100% secured. 

The announcement came last night on Facebook. The Saenger plans to cancel all show times between October 12-20th. You can head to their Facebook page below to read the announcement. Those looking for refunds should also read their announcement for all information. 


Meanwhile, the city continues its third day of search and rescue missions today. There is still 1 person reportedly missing at the scene.
