Mahalia Jackson Theater - New Orleans
Wicked is now performing at the MAHALIA JACKSON THEATRE at 1419 Basin Street, New Orleans, LA 70116. The Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts began its life as the New Orleans Theater of the Performing Arts in January 1973. New Orleans-born Norman Treigle, a bass-baritone and international Opera star, inaugurated the Theatre with a performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa di Requiem, which he performed with the New Orleans Symphony. On December 1, 1993, amidst decades of world class theatre, opera, dance and musical performances, the City Council voted to rename the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts in honor of the famed and beloved New Orleans gospel singer. Though ravaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, this New Orleans landmark in Armstrong Park is once again a cultural center of this unique city.
