Right on Canal Street, the Saenger is easy to find and a perfect place for a show. We say YouTuber DanTDM there. Get there early to admire the theatre. Parking garage across the street for easy access.

We had very good seats to this concert. the atmosphere was great in the theater. Eat before you go. The concert was long and we got our moneys worth.

I have seen several musical events (Government Mule, Ray LaMontagne, My Morning Jacket), stage presentations and more. This is a vaudeville-style theater that is wonderful all on it's own.

We attended the Alton Brown show last night. Really funny, he's a food network celebrity chef. The theater is beautiful. Incredibly clean and well maintained. It reminded me of the Forum in Ceasar Palace, Las Vegas. The seats are close, and smaller. I got stuck...More

The show is another topic entirely but the theater was clean, good location walking distance from the French Quarter, full bar. I'd go again.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

I'm trying to understand if you are wanting Orchestra Pit Seating or if you mean Orchestra Center Row L seats 106 and 107. We had seats a tad farther back for The Lion King and they were great seats.
Hi. I need advice for seats for a Broadway show. My husband can't bend his left leg, and needs a seat he can extend it some. Which seats have the best view and sound, but can accommodate his need to extend his leg. He is not in a wheelchair. There are seats available as follows: 1) floor right side aisle seat - are they angled slightly so that he can sit comfortably with his leg extended? 2) floor left side seat next to wall - rows S or P show no seat directly in front so he can extend his leg. Can you see the stage well from these seats. 3) Balcony seats Row A - Suites A, B, S, or T appear that he would have room to extend his leg.
