Nice theater with good acoustics. It doesn't rival more grand theaters (I.e., the Met, Carnegie Hall or old theaters in Europe) but it is very nice nonetheless and they bring good performances.

We watched the Galen Weston Band and the Gipsy Kings here on Saturday evening. The acoustics were fabulous for that type of performance. The seats were comfortable and not too close to the person beside me. Lots of ushers and helpful staff.

We went in the Belk Theater to select our season ticket seats before the venue officially opened. We choose side orchestra after finding the upper levels a bit too high. Access is convenient downtown Charlotte. Ample parking in 2 nearby decks however it's bit of a hike if one has difficulty walking. Staff will meet you at street level with... More

Attended a Jazz Festival at this location and it was great. Honestly there are no bad seats in this venue.

A great theater for travelling Broadway shows and similar types of theater productions. Reasonably large size as you would expect. Nice, modern feel. Comfortable seats. Good sight lines. A decent array of shows every year (although they do tend to be in town for only 10 days or two weeks). Always an enjoyable night out!

A wonderful facility with top flight entertainment.We recently went to the tribute musical about Carole King, Beautiful. The seating was extremely comfortable and reasonable in price, the performance was exquisite, the acoustics perfect, and the volunteers helpful. One of our friends has a hearing problem and they offered him an electronic aid, which, it turned out, wasn't needed because the... More

First time at Booth, loved it. As a trans female HB2 has changed what I'm able to enjoy and where. I'm not an activist, I simply want to live my life free of hatred and discrimination. My girlfriend talked me into the Dixie show last week. I have nothing but positives to heap an Booth. Shortly after we arrived I... More

We have been members of the Broadway Lights Series for 3 years and we love the selections and the seats we have. The service we receive from Olivia when we call to discuss the new season or any other issues is outstanding. The only complaint is that the theater allows drinks from the concession stand to be brought into the... More
