This was our first time at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre and The Montford Park Players outstanding performance of Robin Hood will bring us back again and again! The talent and direction was superb! The fight scenes were choreographed beautifully as were the duels. What a marvelous opportunity for community involvement! The audience obvious loved the show, as we were all engaged and participated in booing the bad guys and cheering the good guys. You could tell as an audience member that the cast was having a great time too! BRAVO!

Diana Wortham Theatre

In the heart of downtown Asheville, the Diana Wortham Theatre is an intimate 500-seat theater with exceptional acoustics and sightlines and one of the most active performance spaces in all of western North Carolina. The Diana Wortham Theatre offers live performances of music, theatre, dance, comedy, and circus arts by nationally touring artists, as well as a wide array of performances by professional and avocational regional arts groups. The main entrance is marked by the theatre's marquee on Biltmore Ave. between Marble Slab Creamery and White Duck Taco. Patrons enter the theatre through the breezeway and into a large interior courtyard with multiple glass doors into the theatre's lower lobby and box office.

Reviewed By KenCookie - Asheville, United States

This 500-seat theater has been completely refurbished and also now has two much smaller auxiliary performance areas. Shows at The Wortham run the gamut—from stand-up comedians to highbrow performances. Whatever you choose to see, know you’ll be able to sit comfortably, have a good view of the stage, and hear everything without interruption. The staff is excellent. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the lobby for pre-show or intermission seating; even the restrooms are modern and spotless. This gem is widely supported by the Asheville community; in turn, it gives much back to the community. For instance, school children are invited to numerous matinee performances at a very low cost.

I used to live right up the road and would visit Noble often. They have great activities, such as board games and dart boards to play while enjoying some cider. For the time bring, the inside is closed, but it was great to go back for a visit and place a Togo order. Their prices are great! We got a 64 ounce growler for $12! Can’t beat that. Every single thing I’ve tried has always exceeded my expectations and taste buds! I would highly recommend giving this place a visit if you’re in the Asheville area. The Golden Arrow flagship, my favorite, is light and refreshing and has a hint of ginger. The Spice Merchant has a hint of chai and is my other fave!

Our family (myself, husband, daughters ages 6 and 8) did The Super Secret room last night. Our daughters have been wanting to do an escape room and we finally found a family-friendly room. It was awesome! The girls were able to fully participate, yet it was challenging enough that my husband and I both really enjoyed the room as well. Our host, Jon, was amazing. He engaged the girls and talked to them and was kind, helpful, and funny. We can’t wsit to go back!
