Civic Theatre

Infrastructure | Under Construction

This is New Orleans oldest theater and opened in 1906 as the Shubert Theater, one of a nationwide chain. Local theater architect, Sam Stone, designed it to meet specifications for legitimate theater. Through the years its name and its playbill have changed several times, offering movies and vaudeville as the Lafayette, burlesque as the Star, and legitimate theater and music as the Poche and the Civic.
