This place has been closed since Katrina when it was unharmed by the storm but ransacked by vandals from the nearby convention center. It has been sold and reopened as a restaurant. Nearly four years after the last show it is still listed here as a performance theater. Way to go Gambit!

Re: “A Historic Vote: Mitch Landrieu the next mayor of New Orleans

Let's hope we are becoming a more colored blind society. But I think there has to be a little more focus on the black voter if we are to move truely past racial voting. No one can argue truthfully that all is equal in our society. Imagine, if you will, being in the womb and you get to choose some basic cirumstances of your birth. Certainly, if you were looking for the easiest path through life your choises would be to be born 1 American, 2 white and 3 male. And before you start complaining about affirmative action and set asides really consider being born a minority. But I don't beleive the black voter has held up his/her side of the bargain when it comes to voting. This country is far from perfect but consider that a short two generations ago the only job black women held was maid. One generation back they became mayors. An astonishing tribute not only to the black community but also to this great nation. There is plenty evidence of the white voter supporting a black candidate (and I would contend that it was white voters' deep desire to see black people suceed that put Obama in the Whitehouse) but I don't see that being reciprocated. Sure they supported Mitch but that's no great stretch. The Landreau family has always been a friend to the black community. But why is it that black voters fall in lockstep 90% for Dems and even higher if it's a black Democrat? Democrat machines run the big cities of this country and have for years. How's that working out for you, Mr. & Mrs. Black voter of Detroit or South Side Chicago or Watts Los Angeles or yes New Orleans. When the black voter finally takes the nerve to put a Republican sign in his front yard or even throw them a few votes I'll say we are beginning to turn the corner on post racial voting.
