Coming Soon(?) To Frenchmen Street: 132-Seat Theatre

The details are minimal so far, but it looks like 514 Frenchmen Street will be the new home to a 132-seat "neighborhood theatre." Festival Hall Theatre won't take up the entire 6,000-square foot building at the former Laborde & Sons print shop, so stay tuned for new developments. Frenchmen is known for its live music scene and party-in-the-streets vibe, but many fear this Marigny block could become a Bourbon Street shit-show.This is the same spot where Bamboula's, a proposed restaurant/bar with live music, struck a deal but plans fell through when its permit was denied..
