These 12 Theaters In Virginia Will Give You An Unforgettable Viewing Experience

The idea of  “theatre” dates back to ancient Greece in the 6th century B.C. Since that time, nearly every culture, society and ethnic group has used theatrical performance as a means of expressing thoughts, conveying social or political messages, telling stories and portraying history. Today, these performances include dance, music, drama, film and even stand-up comedy. And while a talented performer doesn’t need a grand stage to convey his talent – let’s be honest, the right venue can make all the difference. From ambience to acoustics, a theatre adds a special dynamic to a performance, elevating it or stifling it, depending on the space. Whether its a night at the movies or a Broadway classic, you won’t want to miss these 12 theatres in Virginia. Each offers a special history, flair and architectural uniqueness that takes performance to a new level.

Of course we have not included every theatre in Virginia on this list – so if there’s a special theatre that you know of, we would love to hear about about it. Let us know you’re favorite performing arts venues in the comments below!
