DWT is a small theater that has a packed schedule of varied music. The acoustics are very good, and even the worst seats are better than in many places. Their season tickets are a bargain. Now, if only they could solve Asheville's parking problem.

We had front row, orchestra seats to see Lucia Micarelli play. While she is an extremely talented violinist, her condescending attitude toward her fellow musicians made the concert unpleasant to watch. She smiled and said a few nice things about them but there appeared to...More

Either side should be good. The left probably has easier access but the right is where the refreshments are sold
