This theater is lovely with great acoustics & sound system, nice seats, etc. what made it so special is the staff. Those that greeted us and helped with tickets are great. But you know how awful it can be to have to go to the women's room at intermission and have an extremely long line? They solved that problem with... More

We always enjoy the Symphony. This night featured the percussionist, who is usually situated at the rear of the musicians. Leonardo is definitely a gifted musician. Hats off to all the Symphony musicians. Apologies for the cold weather which affected the participation, but those of us attending, were blessed.

Not a big fan of symphony, but recently attended. Even more important than what you attend, the facility itself is excellent. Seating is good, easy to enter and exit, beautiful auditorium. Abundance of great restaurants in area for before or after show enjoyment.

This was a good show. It was a Chinese dance show about their history. I wanted to try something different and we enjoyed it. The employees were really friendly and courteous.

This is the third season we've purchased season tickets. We LOVE going to The Blumenthal! Always a great experience! And, when we need to change nights of a performance due to travel, they are wonderful to work with and extremely helpful.

Regarding the Belk Theater (the big one), they allowed drinks when I went to Nutcracker (12/2016). So, right in the middle of everything, you have to hear people's ice rattling in their drink cups. Then, earlier in the month, I saw Gentleman's Guide at the Knight Theater (also run by the Blumenthal). In that show, they were allowing drinks AND... More

It is inside of a bigger building so you feel like you are going into a school auditorium. The parking is really hard to determine how to get back to after the show because only some elevators work and others only go to some locations. I would return only if they had something I had to see.

There's no bad seat. It's small enough that it feels intimate. Came here for Caroline Caloush's Clara's Trip. Very enjoyable!

This venue is simply awesome! Attended the Festival of India here twice. The seats were very comfortable. The staff is friendly, helpful and very professional. The seating capacity is huge. And I like that they have space for holding exhibitions on all the levels.

Front row for Mannheim Steamroller. So intimate and loved to look up and see the balconies. The lobby is very understated, but welcoming. Good drink choices and nice area for mingling. The attendants at the restrooms, are amazing, kept everyone "going" and moved the line perfectly. I can't wait to attend another show here.
