I am a regular theater and symphony buff, and absolutely love going to Blumenthal. There are always a variety of shows and events at this venue. What's more is that the venue itself is top-notch. I highly recommend this event space--make sure you take in a show at some point no matter if you are a local or a visitor!

The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center is actually a collection of venues, but the centerpiece is the Belk Theater, located in the heart of Charlotte's center city. Seating in Orchestra or one of the balconies provides multiple vantage points. The upper balcony feels a little distant from the action for me, but all other seating is excellent! I would give 5...

I have visited the Blumenthal PAC on various occasions. It is a well maintained theater for all types of performances. Easy parking, accessibility from the parking deck, and a great variety of bars and restaurants in the vicinity make for a wonderful night out.

Got invited to the Christmas show by the Symphony. The lobby and auditorium were decorated to get everyone in the spirit of Christmas. Then the show started and everyone sat in awh at the sound and performance. Don't miss another performance like I won't.

It was our first time at the Blumenthal theater and I wanted to let everyone know that the theater is so well thought out that there's not a bad seat in the house. There was a group of us that came in to watch a comedian ( Sebastian .. so funny) ..we didn't all have seats together, so we were... More

This is our first year purchasing Broadway Lights season tickets. We are in the upper balcony, but honestly all of the seats in the theater have a good view of the stage. The sound is outstanding and we thoroughly enjoy our evenings out at Blumenthal.

One of my favorite places to be several times a year. I'm a huge Broadway fan so, in my business travels before retiring I always hit the theater, whether it be in London, NY, or any other city. Upon moving to Charlotte, I found the Blumenthal comperable or better than most. I pick several shows annually and always make it... More

We recently saw "An American in Paris" at the Belk Theater in the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. We parked in a nearby parking deck designated for the center and took a short walk. We had a private company cocktail time right before the performance and were able to meet the performers afterwards for a Q&A session. The theater itself is... More

We recently attended the "One Man Act" ...Men Are From Mars --Women From Venus. Almost a capacity crowd on a Friday evening...great show...wonderful venue. Front row...not quite center...a great place to enjoy this fun (adult) one man show. The Blumenthal is a class act...bringing high quality entertainment to Charlotte NC.
