After going to several productions at the Saenger I can see where they renovated the guiding and paint and carpet, and expanded the backstage area, but they should have put in a decent sound system while they were at it. Sitting in the balcony is a waste of time and money. The main floor seating is somewhat better, but we were sitting up close. We walked out on two productions and won't be going back again.

I was born in Pensacola and used to go to the Saenger Theatre on Saturdays for the children's matinee. It was a special occasion. I remember the Saenger before it's renovation. On a recent trip back to Pensacola, I really wanted to tour the Saenger but it was closed. It is only open for performances. They really should consider a tour for the public.

The new renovation has made this a first class setting. The historic pipe organ is on display and is incredible.

Every so often, you find a gem of a place in a spot you would not think. The Saenger Theater is one of those places. It is located in the old downtown area near the pier. There is plenty to do and see downtown.

This is an actual theater. The acoustics are fine, the seats are fairly comfortable and the staff is top notch. Whether you go to see a play, stand-up comedian, musical group or other entertainer, you will be happy with your experience at the Saenger Theater.
