The Triangle makes it easy to experience the best in performing arts

Durham Performing Arts Center

Amy and some friends recently spent an evening at the Durham Performing Arts Center (D-PAC), where comedian Jerry Seinfeld stopped on his national concert tour. From the pre-show dinner and drinks at Cuban Revolution in the American Tobacco entertainment complex to the easy walk to and from the show, the entire evening served as a terrific testament to the accessibility and type of nightlife that can be experienced here in the Triangle, especially when it comes to the arts.

People relocating from New York or Chicago, for example, can expect some sort of drop off in the variety of shows available. But not much. Raleigh’s Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts and the D-PAC have their annual schedules jammed with world-class, Broadway-level entertainment. Any national tour you can find in Boston or LA, for example, you have a great chance of catching in the Triangle as well.

Beyond the national names, you can find an array of outstanding smaller acts, not to mention the local symphonies, ballets and concert artists.

Cary is home to the Koka Both Amphitheatre, which attracts some of the best music and outdoor theatre acts in the country and is home to the North Carolina Symphony’s Summerfest concert series.

Both Progess and DPAC are surrounded by an array of great restaurants and places to relax before and after shows. Plus, parking is cheap and simple at both venues. The only way it could easier to enjoy a night out at the theatre in the Triangle is if you didn’t have to drive.

So go ahead, hire a limo.
