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!

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.

Charlotte Symphony concerts are a delight when heard in this pleasing hall. I like row L , front middle of the house, and an aisle seat - best for stage view and full enjoyment of entire orchestral performance, solos, too.

Neverland on the play list, but the usual easy drive compounded by rain and Race for a Cure blocked off adjacent streets turned easy into queasy. The performance itself brought a tear at the finale. The exit being much smoother.
