The theatre itself is large and pretty, but the parking, drinks, and snacks are over priced...like most shows. The bathrooms were clean and most of the seats have a good view.

The comedy show and the facility itself was great. The location is easily accessible and the auditorium itself is comfortable. The sound for the show was very good as well. My rating is focused on the management and concessions. First the doors for a show...More

Fantastic venue for the performing arts...concerts, plays, operas etc. I saw the play "Miss Saigon" here many years ago...had to have it here instead of the Saenger, due to the scale sized helicopter being too large...great effect and show...Bravo!!

Enjoy attending the opera here. Easy to get to, plenty of parking and short lines to get in. Bathroom visits should be planned ahead, not all are located in the same place on each level. Preorder your intermission beverage, if you need to.

This was a nice theater, with comfortable seating and roomier aisles. We had seats on the floor and had a great view of the stage. We were far enough back to be able to see everything!

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
