Back in day, I was on the volunteer team for opening day of this PAC. We have visited many times since for different types of events. We are always pleased and leave filled with joy. Every seat in both The Belk and The Booth is a good one. Acoustics are superb. The Belk is simply beautiful to see even before... More

Beautiful venue in Center City. Very clean with most courteous staff of any theater we have been to. Surprised to find loitering has been addressed in area making our time in town much more enjoyable than expected. Plenty of facilities for the ladies so intermission was not stressful. Good, quick Mexican grill across street.

We have been season pass holders for the plays and are at the Blumenthal about once a month . Nice theater with plenty of parking close by.

What a beautiful theatre! They've recently completed a renovation and I thought it was gorgeous!! I would love to return again to see another performance here! The seats were comfortable and everything was clean! The ushers were extremely friendly and knowledgeable!

I recently went to see Under the Street Lamp and Gentleman's Rule and both shows were outstanding! Both shows had the audience singing along and dancing in their seats. When that happens at any concert it is a perfect barometer for how good a show is. They both were very engaged with the audience and it was a super fun... More

I took the four-hour drive alone to see Paula Deen and family the night her new network launched. The theater was absolutely gorgeous. The seats were comfortable, and everything appeared clean and new. Up in the Grand Tier, I was fortunate to be on the end of the aisle, but anyone sitting toward the middle of the row had to... More

The new seats are in and they are more comfortable than the old ones, but don't get your hopes up. They are still small and if you are in the Grand Tier be prepared to squeeze your way in to your seat unless you are on the end. For some reason the first three rows go all the way around... More

The performance and performers were very good. The seating is comfortable (seats along the balcony) and perfect for viewing the stage. The access from BOA parking was ideal, since you can walk from the deck into the Duke theater. The only down side was leaving the garage after the play it took 30+ mins. They need a better system to... More

Wonderful play not to be missed! The Performing Arts Center was beautiful but seating was tight. Also, during intermission there was a long line for the only ladies room located on each level. With that being said I still thoroughly enjoyed the play, the actors were magnificent.

Have been doing Broadway Lights for a couple of years now. Every trip is a pleasure. The staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating always greeting us with a smile. The performances are top notch and we leave anticipating the next time we can go. Everything from parking arrangements to the staff to the shows is done with excellence. Love it!
