The response comes under the direction of Governor John Bel Edwards’ executive order, banning large public gatherings in Louisiana with more than 250 people, effective immediately until Monday, April 13.

Skinner said ticket holders will be contacted directly.

“At this time, we are working toward rescheduling some of our upcoming performances,” the statement said.

The Saenger Theatre and Mahalia Jackson Theatre will communicate schedule changes via social media, email and websites.

“We will be monitoring the situation and look forward to welcoming you back to the Saenger Theatre and Mahalia Jackson Theater when we reopen,” the statement said.
