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!

Viewing Porgy and Bess was a pleasure…a top act…..but despite over 100 people complaining about it being too cold in the theatre (good orchestra seating in middle), NO one did anything…we saw over 2 dozen patrons leave…..what is going on….management on vacation???

The Broadway program was the main attraction for this theater visit, and the quality of the show and performers was exceptional. The theater is pretty shabby but improvements are scheduled for this year. Limited bar/food items on sale. Parking is only $5 at the Bank of America building, if you pre-purchase an exit ticket from the theater during intermission.

My friends and I came up here from Savannah to see "We Will Rock You". There really isn't a bad seat in the house, so don't worry about not being able to see (unless someone sits in front of you with a ridiculously large hat or something). I would definitely make the trip up here again to see another show!

We drove several hours to hear the incredible Eddie Izzard at the Blumenthal. We were very pleased that the acoustics and site lines of the Blumenthal were really excellent, which added to the performance greatly. A great place to see shows and acts.

I saw Eddie Izzard perform to a sold-out crowd on 22-May. This venue was perfect for that type of performance. The seating and acoustics were great. I definitely hope to attend more performances here.

Our first visit to the Knight was for the recent Fortgotten Land and Othello, and we were pleased with the access, facilities, acoustics and seating chart. We chose to be higher up for this ballet and chose seats in the Grand Tier which offer great stage view. The ushers were friendly and helpful, and we look forward to another program... More
