City Stage Theatre is set in the heart of downtown Wilmington. Architecturally it is an interesting venue that could use some updates. The AC/heat, carpets, elevator and bathrooms are pretty run down.
I have never seen a bad performance at City Stage. They put on great work. Plan your evening to include a drink on the roof top bar to watch the sunset over the USS North Carolina.
I highly recommend taking the stairs, A) great work out B) the elevator is not to be trusted and often broken.
