Great venue for performing and display arts and as a music venue, and adjacent to the Cat's Cradle, it's one of the best in the region. Love this timeless, iconic treasure of a venue.

Yes, it's an art center but they have great music concerts too. Great acoustics, comfortable seating, and many good acts come there instead of other places in the Triangle. I like reserved seating too.

Lot's of activity, and a nice place to pass some time, be it theater, music, crafts, etc. Not polished, but the funky style complements the restaurants, night life, and shopping in and around the area. It's a bit hidden, but that did not seem to...More

My children have attended summer camps here and they have wonderful programs for children through adults in summers and year round. Most travelers may not also realize that they have shows -- a cozy venue, music groups, theater. Check out their schedule.
