DPAC Ranks Top 10 Nationally

It's a fine day when a thing held in high-esteem receives high praise, and today is a mighty fine day indeed.  DPAC - Durham Performing Arts Center was ranked by Pollstar magazine as having the ninth highest year end ticket sales in the nation. This says a lot about the overall adoption and acceptance of DPAC as a world-class venue for performing arts.

Topping the list is New York's Radio City Music Hall with Atlanta's Fox Theater, Madison Square Garden, Caesars Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas, the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, St Louis' Fabulous Fox Theater, the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh, and Detroit's Fox Theater, rounding out the top eight.

"If you haven’t been to DPAC yet there is no better time than this winter and spring. We have over fifty different performances to choose from. Our mission is to present unique, one-of-a-kind live entertainment events. From Broadway to concerts, comedy to family shows…there really is something for everyone at DPAC,” said Bob Klaus, GM at DPAC. 

Read their press release about the ranking and note their calendar of upcoming events as there are many reasons to visit this landmark theater. Upcoming highlights include The Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Madagascar Live, Comedian Wanda Sykes and the American Dance Festival.
