After more than eight years, the historic Saenger Theatre will proudly reopen its doors this fall with a grand opening celebration, featuring a lineup of performances commemorating the city’s love for live entertainment of all kinds.

The initial announcement includes a variety of entertainment beginning on Sept. 28 and continuing through Jan. 10 of 2014. Additional performances will be announced as they are confirmed.

The Saenger Theatre is currently undergoing a $52 million restoration led by the City of New Orleans, Canal Street Development Corporation, and ACE Theatrical Group. 

“The Saenger Theatre is the crown jewel of Canal Street,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “Combined with new state-of-the-art features and the authentic restoration to its original 1927 design, the new Saenger Theatre will redefine the live entertainment marketplace in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region. Today’s announcement of the grand opening celebration lineup reestablishes the Saenger as the premier live entertainment venue in the region, truly providing something for everyone.”

The lineup of opening shows is as follows:
