Opened as The Shadowbox Theatre on March 26, 2010, and renamed to The Old Marquer in 2015, the theatre has quickly grown into the busiest theatre in New Orleans. The Old Marquer has been an official venues for the New Orleans Fringe Festival, as well as for the Hell Yes comedy festival. Performers have appeared on our stage from all over the country including the Amazing Acro-Cats from Chicago, members of Second City, the Upright Citizens Brigade touring company, and countless comedians from across the south.

Went to see Flowers in the Attic. While I had read the book waaaaay back when, I knew the story but was still pleasantly surprised. I love finding talent in little obscure places. It makes for a fun, close up experience in a very small...More

This show is creative genius in my opinion. While it isn't for everyone(language), it does a great job of spoofing Night of the Living Dead. The cast is into this production and they have fun. Very talented people. If you are looking for Broadway level...More

Walking dead the musical? Yes that's right. The venue is very small and not at all fancy or comfortable. But when we got past that minor inconvenience we were rewarded with talented singers, dancers and spot on comedic talent. Laughed till we couldn't catch our...More

We saw a burlesque show on Friday night. I wasn't sure what to expect. It was funny, and quite a original story line.

Think of a basement at street level with an elevated assortment of hard chairs. We saw the "Vagina Monologues". It was OK considering the low $20 ticket price. The young staff was very friendly and the touring cast did a good job of enthusiastically bringing...More

Hello Mitchell! Thanks for visiting us back in April. We're definitely a theatre, just not a type of theatre that you're used to. You've probably visited a lot of proscenium theatres, with a defined stage set right in front of the audience; we're know as...More

I went to the Shadowbox to see "An Outopia for Pigeons" and must say I had a very pleasant experience. It's a small, very cool little theater located in what was a retail space. The show we saw was uneven, but we really enjoyed it...More

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
