About the Wall Street Theater
The Wall Street Theater (www.wallstreettheater.com) is the first, next-generation performance space in Connecticut showcasing professional music, comedic, dance and stage performances from nationally-recognized names as well as local organizations. The 700-seat theater, located at 71 Wall Street in the downtown section of Norwalk, Connecticut, underwent a $10 million-dollar renovation to restore this historic landmark to its original glory from the early 1900s. Originally known as The Regent when the location opened in 1915 featuring Vaudeville performances, the theater was also known as The Norwalk and The Roxy (during this time period, the theater was outfitted as a movie theater showing such blockbusters as “Jaws” and “Blues Brothers”). During its tenure as The Globe in the 90s, the stage featured many up-and-coming performers on tour such as Beastie Boys, Lil’ Kim, Psychedelic Furs, Mighty Might Bosstones, Poison and the Allman Brothers, until it shuttered in the late 90s. 71 Wall Street remained dark until it reopened as The Wall Street Theater in the summer of 2017.
Under the direction of president Suzanne Cahill, artistic director Billy Blanks, Jr., concert director Gene Morell, developer Frank Farricker and an advisory board, the theater is planning on offering arts education for families, mentoring programs for youth in the arts, summer camp programming, and offering its space for private rentals, parties and events.
