That Empty Feeling

Record #:
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.
