I can't say enough good things about this theatre and the quality of the performances. We saw Fun Home recently and it was probably the best show we have seen in ages. This theatre presents quality performances that can't be beat.

Beautifully renovated theatre in Downtown Norfolk. It has a small intimate feeling that pulls you right onto the stage. I thoroughly enjoyed "Always, Patsy Cline" and will be returning for more shows this Fall/winter.
