The theater was built in 1927, but Katrina’s storm ravaging waters damaged the theatre and water rose to shoulder deep in front of the Saenger stage, inundating electrical equipment and deteriorating the interior. Complex financing slowed the restoration of the building, pushing back both 2011 and 2013 opening deadlines. The grand, $51 million renovation will finally see its completion in October and will feature a vast effort to replicate the building’s 1920’s splendor.
