A state and national landmark, the Attucks Theatre is distinguished as the oldest remaining legitimate theatre in the nation that was completely financed, designed, constructed and operated by African Americans. In its heyday, the theatre was the focal point of entertainment, business, and racial pride in Norfolk’s African-American community. Built in 1919, the name of the theatre, “Attucks,” commemorates Crispus Attucks, an African-American man who was the first American patriot to lose his life in the Boston Massacre of 1770. In the present day, the Attucks Theatre is a star on the Norfolk cultural stage, with an eclectic lineup each season, including musical performances, plays, dramatic readings, etc. The Attucks Theatre, located just minutes from downtown, has a well-deserved reputation for combining elegance and first-class service.
