Abstract:
Some are wondering who is responsible for the problems surrounding the construction of the Durham Performing Arts Center. The city owes millions on the project and the cost of the project has gone beyond its initial projections. The center’s oversight committee will not have much power to monitor the operating agreement the center has with its promoter and booking company. Also, many of the employees who will work in the center will not be able to make a living wage working there.

Abstract:
The new Durham Performing Arts Center advertises that it has a state of the art sound system. However, an investigation has revealed that the center sacrificed sound quality to meet its budget. This may cause acts to rent additional speakers which would place a financial burden on the touring performer. Some were wondering how the center was built so cheaply, and sacrificing sound quality may be one way the city was able to do so.

Abstract:
The Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) just opened its theater and the center is filling local residents with pride. The success of the theater depends on more than just Durham residents. Local politicians describe how the center is unique and promote a competition with Raleigh. However, the success of DPAC will depend on the entire Triangle region for it to be a success and local leaders should rethink their marketing strategy.

Abstract:
A year from opening, the Durham Performing Arts Center is already saddled with doubt. The reasons for this doubt include not securing the naming rights for the center, financial costs of construction, the cost of ticket prices, competition with Carolina Theatre in Durham and the Progress Energy Center in Raleigh, and filling the theater for performances. Attracting talent is also an issue as the rental rates exclude many local, nonprofit, and grassroots organizations. The issues surrounding the building and the opening of the theater are discussed in detail.
