great place

Great place, details: great acoustics for any music, wonderful chairs, the kind of place I would accept if I was a famous pianist or tenor what I am not, but a writer.

Love this theater. Took advantage of the Broadway Light Series. Great seats regardless of your seat location. We sat on the Mezzanine Level and had a nice view. Will defiantly be back.

Recently saw Pippin with my wife. We've been going to 2 or 3 shows per year for the last 5 years, and have yet to have anything but a great experience. The shows have been wonderful, sound, seating, ushers, concessions are spot on. We will continue to make Blumenthal part of our entertainment experience.

Great theater in the center of uptown. We have seen Broadway shows, the symphony and a variety of musical events over the years. Within walking of light rail and easy parking with payment available in the theater lobby.

I heard the Charlotte Symphony and the Oratorio Singers concert at the Knight Theater in another terrific Knights Sounds. It was Scott Jerrett's last performance before anchoring himself in Boston and it was a tremendous performance. It was focused on "Coronation" music from Handel Mozart & J.C. Bach and was fantastic. I especially enjoyed it since we just celebrated the... More

I have had the opportunity to watch ballet in the Booth Playhouse and opera in Belk Theater. Both were wonderful experiences. Park at BofA Corporate Parking Center if coming to see a performance. You never have to walk outside to get to good dining, i.e. Blue Restaurant, or the performance. If you take your parking ticket inside, you can have... More

We were at the theatre for the Celtic Woman Show. The theatre is very clean all around. Seats are comfortable and viewing angles are perfect. We set slightly left of the center section and the found the sound system and acoustics to be excellent. From the time we entered until we left we were made to feel welcome. They have... More
