After several attempts, the City Council approved the Huka / SMG proposal to operate and book Mobile’s Historic Saenger Theatre
Huka/SMG proposal to run Saenger is on the table again. Huka says they already have at least ten performances ready to finalize for the remainder of 2013, and at least 64 so far for next year. Those possibilities could be lost if the City does not take action as soon as possible. The Saenger will be shut down October 1 if no decision made pursuant to the City’s agreement to finance it for one year.

Gulf Coast News says they’re still finding tarballs on beaches even though BP monitors left. If you see any, please call NRC 800-424-8802.
