Saenger Theatre in New Orleans has some great shows coming straight from Broadway this year and audiences will have much to revel in and choose from. Nevertheless, the biggest draw will likely be "The Book of Mormon," which consistently sells out across the country and is to this day getting rave reviews.
Broadway’s biggest hits will tour to a freshly restored New Orleans landmark in October 2013. Broadway in New Orleans made the announcement with fanfare on Thursday morning, using the lobby of the renovated Saenger Theatre to announce its 2013-2014 season of touring shows.
The season kicks off with “The Book of Mormon,” a musical comedy from the creators of “South Park.” The show earned nine Tony Awards and a Grammy Award for its cast album. It opens Oct. 15 and runs through Oct. 27 at the Saenger.
