A great venue for some very good productions. We have really missed Broadway & Off-Broadway shows since we left New York, but the Wilson Center's Performances help to fill that void. We have seen at least six different performances over the past 1 1/2 years....More

Wonderfully staffed theater. Everyone was pleasant and helpful to first-time visitors. Seating is comfortable, I believe every seat is a good seat due to thoughtful arrangement of rows. Romeo and Juliet was artfully performed in front of the very talented North Carolina Symphony. Thoroughly enjoyable.
