The Attucks Theatre Today

Since its reopening, the Attucks has regained its place as a centerpiece for the community, the city of Norfolk, and the region. Once again, the Attucks marquee glows, and the stage is filled with great performances, with recent examples including jazz legend Wynton Marsalis, New York-based contemporary dance company Urban Bush Women, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Tony Award winning singer and actress Audra McDonald, comedians Paula Poundstone and John Mulaney, singers Mavis Staples, Ruthie Brown and Al Jarreau; diverse bands from the Afro-Cuban All Stars to the Avett Brothers and Cowboy Junkies, theatrical productions including L.A. Theatre Works’ The Mountaintop, the world premiere performances of the opera Kept: a ghost story, and many more.
