We have been to the BPAC many times, and Charlotteans are fortunate to have a wonderful facility like this. The atmosphere is cozy and the setting intimate, the acoustics is incredible. There is not a bad seat in this center.

Going "uptown" is not a frequent date night for us, so we forget how things are "done" in the big city. The staff at Blumenthal made things easy for us and we enjoyed a terrific evening of entertainment. From parking permits to directions to seating to intermission beverages, all instructions were clear and concise. My only regret is that they... More

This is a nice-sized auditorium for a show or concert. It is very clean and updated. All of the seats are good regardless of where you sit. The sound system is excellent. Great staff and supportive services. Drinks and snacks are available, but not inexpensive. Ladies room lines are tolerable.

Charlotte is fortunate to have a theatre at the level of the products the Blumenthal brings in! This is a wonderful theatre - with lots of touring shows, great music - super night out.

I have enjoyed plays, music performances, and comedy acts at The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and each time I am impressed with this beautiful venue. Good view in virtually any seat.

We saw Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett at Knight Theater last week, our first time there. The theater is small and had the feel of sitting in someone's living room listening to Keen and Lovett tell stories and play music. Acoustics were good. There was a full bar and you could carry drinks inside. Convenient parking is across the... More

Decent theatre. Biggest surprise is how terrible the box seats are for seeing the stage. Have purchased these for three shows since they are supposed to be the best seats in the house. However, was sorely disappointed each time. You have to lean over the rail to see the stage, which then makes it impossible for the person beside you... More
