Highly recommended for the shows, not so much for the seating, which was apparently designed by the same person who designs the cheap seats for airlines. I am talking about Playmakers Kenan Theatre.

Live, intimate theater with professional actors as well as graduate students in the Professional Theater Program. I've seen performances here that were actually better than the performances at Durham Performing Arts Center by Broadway casts. Here you are much closer to the stage (there are...More

Saw "Into the Woods" recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quality on the same level as the professional shows at DPAC at a smaller, more intimate setting. Seating arranged so no bad seat in the house. And free parking on a Saturday night in the deck!!
