Your Mahalia Jackson Experience

A Tremé Landmark

The Mahalia Jackson Theater opened in the heart of Louis Armstrong Park in 1973 and has been home to everything from performing arts groups, like the New Orleans Ballet Association, to iconic performers, such as Diana Ross, ever since. After Hurricane Katrina brought in over 14 feet of water, the theater went under a roughly $30 million renovation. Today, we are ready to welcome all to experience the magic of live entertainment.
