We saw The Book of Mormon here. Not a huge theater so it allows you to see and hear the show fairly well. When I exited the theater during intermission, there was a long line for the women’s restroom. No surprise there but they had...More

My focus was attending the performance of “Bright Star,” a bonus was visiting the Blumenthal. Reaching the theater for a new-to-Charlotte driver was not difficult. Parking was a bit awkward due to unfamiliar surroundings. A second trip would be super easy. There were plenty of...More
