More About DPAC

DPAC’s advance to this attendance landmark has been driven by a mission to be guests’ favorite place for live entertainment.  Since 2008, DPAC has hosted blockbuster shows direct from Broadway, world-renowned concerts, celebrated comedians and a wealth of other special events.  DPAC has also been consistently ranked among the top five most attended theaters in the U.S. for the past ten years and was recently named Theater of the Year by International Entertainment Buyers Association.

“I am so proud of where DPAC has come since opening in 2008,” reflects Bob Klaus, DPAC General Manager. “In just ten years, we’ve welcomed 4 million guests, which some venues take decades to accomplish. It is with the hard work of our dedicated staff, the incredibly talented cast and crews from our national tours and most of all, the support of the Triangle community that has enabled us to reach yet another milestone in our theater’s short history.”

Since opening in 2008, DPAC has presented nearly 1,018 hit Broadway performances, 287 concerts and 103 celebrity comedians. Almost 810 of these events have been total sellouts including multi-week runs of Disney’s The Lion King, Broadway’s #1 blockbuster WICKED, The Book of Mormon and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring the Rockettes. Renowned artists such as Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton and Aretha Franklin have graced the stage, and comedians like Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer and Gabriel Iglesias have made DPAC audiences laugh. DPAC is also home to SunTrust Broadway at DPAC, one of the top Broadway Series in the U.S.
