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.

We have seen a few different shows at the Wells Theater. It really is a nice theater and we intend to go again when another show appeals to us.

If you’re lucky enough to be in town when they are presenting something, go! Everything I’ve seen there has been first-rate. The theater itself is lovely - great historic details that have been well-preserved.
