The Saenger Theater Moves Shows Over to Mahalia Jackson Theater

In completely unfortunate circumstances, The Saenger Theater has had to move shows due to the Hard Rock Hotel collapse over to the Mahalia Jackson Theater.

Shows affected include Elvis Costello and the Imposters‘ “Just Trust” concert for November 13, “Tigerama” for November 14, as well as “The Elf on the Shelf” for November 19. All will be moved over to the Mahalia Jackson Theater located at 1419 Basin Street. 


Following the collapse almost a month ago, the Saenger was forced to cancel shows for their October show “Wicked.” 

There is no new news following the Hard Rock Hotel construction site at the corner of Canal and North Rampart. The collapse killed three and injured more. Besides the “controlled demolition” on October 20, there has been no other news regarding the status of the site.
