The Project

Located on a prime corner of the famed-Jackson Square in the New Orleans French Quarter, the Le Petit Theater is a treasured facility within the performing arts community.  Originally purchased by the community theater troupe in 1922, the building is a masonry structure protected by the city’s Vieux Carre commission.  After significant ownership and leadership transitions in 2010, it was determined that the facility would be converted into a joint restaurant and theater facility – creating an expanded theater-going experience and new revenue stream for the facility.

Broadmoor was selected as the Design-Build Contractor, and was tasked with managing the challenging design and construction process of fitting of a full service fine dining restaurant and community theater into an existing three-story, 25,000 square foot space.
Due to the building’s central French Quarter context and historic significance, our team was mindful of preserving the integrity of the exterior while transforming the interior into the owners’ vision. Though the theatre and restaurant renovations were a challenge through both the design and construction phases, the project brought to life the important reinvention of a cherished French Quarter community center, and we are proud to have been a part of returning Le Petit to full operations for the City and its guests.
