Norfolk hums with great theatre! Throughout the year, you can see shows that reflects our diverse community and spirited audiences in venues large and small, showcasing Norfolk’s rich cultural heritage and the performing arts organizations who enliven the scene here. No wonder this city that has become a cultural destination for arts lovers!
With hundreds of theatre seats in venues ranging in capacity from 75 to 2500, Norfolk is one of the most theatre-rich cities in Virginia and the surrounding region. The city is home to vibrant producing theatre companies, a gifted performing community, university theatre programs, and a nurturing environment for new works; and Norfolk also hosts a robust touring Broadway series which draws tens of thousands of residents and regional visitors to multiple productions per season. In addition, the venues that house some of the liveliest performances in Norfolk are among the most beautiful and historic places in this architecturally distinguished city, including the Attucks Theatre, celebrating its centennial in 2019--the oldest remaining theatre in the nation that was designed, financed and built by African Americans.
