Small state of the arts theater. There seems to be 2 to 3 events going on most weeks. Go online for calendar of events and ticket purchase

I had my doubts as I watched the "Swiss Cheese" building going up. However, I have attended several performances there now, and the venue does not disappoint. I do understand that the local ballet people have some criticisms but the faults are not visible or experienced from the patrons. The building is stunning on the inside, and there is really... More

This place has been a god send for the entire Midland/Odessa/West Texas area. They are getting really good entertainers and shows on a weekly basis. It is rather strange looking from the outside, but once inside it is both visually and audibly stunning. There is literally not a bad seat in the entire place. The very comfortable seats have plenty... More

Harry Connick Jr. raved about what an outstanding performing arts center this is, during his concert. When someone like Connick is impressed, than you can bet it is impressive. Midland/Odessa has had a non-stop flow of shows and concerts to enjoy ever since it was opened. It is obviously large enough to attract some outstanding shows and talent, yet every... More

The smaller auditorium lends itself well to feeling close to the entertainers on stage. We've scene several types of performances and the acoustics were good. Each was memorable.

Wagner Noel is a Broadway quality facility. I was very very impressed. The seating is very well designed and the sound quality is superb. I can't wait to go back.

The Wagner-Noel Center is easily the best thing to happen to Midland in the last 4 years. It is a state-of-the-art complex, and it attracts nationally-recognized performers. Pick a show, any show -- they're all great! We just saw Harry Connick, Jr., and it was AMAZING.

This is a wonderful place. My husband and I have been to several different things at this center. The sound quality is great. Several times the band that was playing have stated it is as good as any place in NYC etc. If you are ever in Midland, Texas and have a chance to go, please do so.
