The Blumenthal is one of 3 or 4 venues. This location is the most "proper", but a great venue to see a show. They specialize in Broadway shows and always deliver. The only complaint is the restroom situation. They definitely need more!

If you have signed up for the Broadway series do so now! Acoustics are great. Seating plentiful and good view from just about anywhere. ordering online is easy and works everything. Treat yourself or give as a gift to someone you love or a client.

This is one of the premier theaters in the country. I subscribe to the Broadway Lights Series, and see the Charlotte Symphony here, as well as other shows. It rivals some of the best theaters in NY and Toronto for acoustics and visibility. Highly recommend.
