The Rockwell (formerly Davis Square Theatre), is located in the heart of Davis Square - a few blocks from the Davis Square T, situated between Foundry-on-Elm and The Burren, at 255 Elm Street, Somerville MA.

The intimate, comfortable 145 seat venue has been updated with a brand new bar, PA system and theater lighting. Having played host to hundreds of productions from the worlds of comedy, music, theater, television, radio, political events and kids shows, we hope to continue to serve the community in the same fashion: by offering a wide array of programming to our discerning and diverse patrons.
