Durham has many great things to offer, but this is the best performance venue in the Triangle. It's first-class in every way - sound, video, lighting, seating, design, decor, cleanliness, and helpful staff. I highly recommend taking in performances and events at the DPAC.

DPAC is home to the best of Broadway. The shows are mostly "best sellers" and tend to be moderately priced ($40-&100 USD per seat). There is excellent parking near-by and lots of dinner options. Children under 5 years are not permitted to attend shows. This is a superb facility.

I go to about 7 shows a year at DPAC. I have gone to the American Dance Festival every year it has been presented. The site lines are good, as is the fidelity of the sound. The staff is very helpful getting you to your seats. And the seats are comfortable to sit in. During intermissions the variety of drinks (hard and soft) and snacks are wide and the quality is good. I can't ask for anything more. It is up to me to choose shows that I really enjoy.

We've seen so many great shows here and the building is gorgeous. Its also in a great area with some awesome restaurants within walking distance. Staff is always friendly and helpful. There are also plenty of parking options, but on really busy nights, there may be a walk involved.

I have seen a couple of shows in this venue and there is not a bad seat in the house. Good sight lines and the sound quality is very good.
