In February, I told you all about going to New Orleans to see Kinky Boots. It was an absolutely fantastic show with lots of great songs and some major talent. I think we were seeing some of the stars of tomorrow for sure. The dancing was amazing as well. A very fun show.
The theatre itself is large and seats a vast amount of people but every seat is good and the acoustics are awesome. It was like they were right near us even though we were in the balcony. I believe the seating capacity is around 4000.
The inside of the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans is impressive all by itself. It’s like being in Italy with the stars shining down on you. There are statues along the ceiling and the stars really do twinkle. It’s a magical place even before the show starts.
There’s no photography allowed inside but I “borrowed” some pictures from the website so you can see. It’s a lovely theatre and was built in 1927. We also have a Saenger Theatre in Pensacola and there’s one in Mobile, Alabama, too. They were built by two brothers, Julian and Abe Saenger. Ours is Art Deco as well but not nearly as impressive as the one in NOLA.
