Stage Door Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
Fantastic! Not only was the production very enjoyable to watch, but the venue itself is very nice! There's plenty of seating options depending on the budget you have or view you desire. The venue was very clean, and very well kept. All the important things seemed up to date, and we'll looked after. The staff were very helpful, very professional, and very nice. It's something worth noting. The beverages were a bit on the expensive side, and I'd like to see more wines offered, over beers. But that's just personal preference. Parking was nice as well, and not too complicated to find, if your semi-familiar with the Charlotte Uptown layout.
I went for the Nutcracker Ballet and had a great time! The theatre is a good size with beautiful architecture. I love that there is a parking garage connected to the theatre. It's a little confusing for first timers due to little signage but, if you follow the crowd on a big event night they will lead you where you need to go. The theatre offers snacks and beverages but they are pretty pricey for a small amount. The show was beautiful and I had such a great time! All the staff is very nice and willing to answer all your questions. They even validated my parking for a cheaper price! I will most definitely be back.
Great venue, fantastic shows. My family and I love the Broadway series but there's so much more to enjoy here! Last year, we took advantage of Kids Night and the Lunch & Learn offerings. If you're local to Charlotte and haven't done either of these, you really ought to!
First time. Great venue. Parked in Bank of Americas parking structure. Get the prepaid voucher and exchange it inside the theater for an exit pass. Speeds up leaving the show and parking. Allow yourself plenty of time to park and get to theatre. Seats are comfortable for a taller person. Great legroom. Best seats are 10 or more rows back from stage. Found that being too close was not optimal to enjoy the full stage production. My fault not theirs. Alcohol and snacks available. Prices are similar to other venues. Staff is great at getting you in, seated and out when done. Restrooms are a bit crowded at breaks but better than most facilities. Take the family and enjoy NY style productions at Southern prices.
I've been to many, many shows/concerts here and it's by far the best performance venue in the city. Thoroughly modern and comfortable though be aware that balcony seats generally involve quite a few stairs so that can be an issue for those with mobility trouble. Staff and volunteers are generally very pleasant.
