About The Music Hall
In 1878, The Music Hall opened its doors as a Vaudeville theater, bringing a fresh cultural vibrancy to the city of Portsmouth. Fast forward 140 years and The Music Hall—now with a second theater—has been pivotal in a revitalization of downtown into one of the most robust arts destinations in New England.
We are a vibrant cultural and community hub. We host over 130,000 patrons every year. Our passion is to inspire, educate, and connect audiences through the power of live performances and on-screen programming. We aim to ignite creativity, purpose, and a sense of community.
