Nice theatre. It was small, but comfortable and cozy. Our seats were great, even on the far side. We very much enjoyed Jen Kober's show, and were very happy to see an LGBTQ headliner during our vacation in Asheville, NC

DWT is a small theater that has a packed schedule of varied music. The acoustics are very good, and even the worst seats are better than in many places. Their season tickets are a bargain. Now, if only they could solve Asheville's parking problem.

Either side should be good. The left probably has easier access but the right is where the refreshments are sold
