This building was originally a hotel in 1809 and converted to a theater in 1935. It is also on the site of the first theater in the US thirteen colonies (before independence). A lot of history is here.

The original Dock Street Theater was opened in 1736 nearby, but much of the French Quarter burned in 1740.

The waiting room where you gather before a show is like a little museum.

During intermission there is a 200 hundred year old tap room for refreshments.

Walking into the theater was spur of the moment, the doors were open. Better lighting, a different camera and lens, many other little things could have provided different types of images.

But really, what could be better than an on the fly shoot of history.
