About the Theatre
Founded in 1953, the nationally recognized Barksdale Theatre, now Virginia Repertory Theatre, is the oldest continually operating dinner theatre in America. A group of young actors from New York bought the Hanover Tavern, constructed a theater in the basement and raised their families on the floors above. In defiance of Jim Crow laws, Barksdale was Virginia’s first performing arts organization to open its doors to integrated audiences. Performing today in our modern 155-seat Bradley Theater, Barksdale offers a varied selection of plays each year.
