I have seen Jerry Seinfeld and Robert Earl Keen's Christmas Concert which should illustrate the diversity of acts, shows and concerts that are offered here. Not a bad seat in the house, plenty of parking and easy to get in and out of regarding traffic.

I go to the Wagner Noel for orchestra concerts, Broadway touring musicals, and other arts productions. I always pinch myself and ask "Am I really in the desert?" This facility is state of the art and has acoustics that can't be beat. Literally, there's not...More

Wagner Noel has opened many new doors for the Midland/Odessa area offering quality shows that have not had a proper performance hall before. Most of the shows are very good. Of course they cannot control the shows themselves but they book good talent. I have...More

Virtually every seat has excellent sound quality. I prefer the lower floor to actually see the facial expressions of the performers. The first 3-4 rows are REALLY close, but worth the cost. You can take drinks into the performance-as long as they are the ones...More

When they first announced the Wagner Noel I was skeptical. From the outside it looks odd and sticks out in the West Texas desert. But it is a jewel in the desert. The theater is beautiful inside. They have some great acts come here. Check...More

Wagner Noel is a good venue that is not huge so it is not overcrowded. It is a good size but no seat feel too far away, and it isn't a pain to get in and out of because of all the people. Parking is...More

A performing Hall worthy of great talent and complemented by almost everyone who has visited, including Art Garfunkle, judyCollins, and others. I don't like the availability of drinks being brought into the Performing Hall since this is not a movie theater. I wish the space...More

We enjoy the Dress circle, but have sat in many seats there including parterre and really there is not a bad seat in the house. It was in the top 5 for venues less than 5000 seats a couple of years ago. It is an excellent... More
