Nice performance auditorium located on Duke University's West Campus next to the Chapel. The theater has been recently renovated but still retains a more historic feel. Smaller theater with good views both from floor seating and balcony.

Pilobolus: five stars (probably); Page Auditorium: Negative five stars; net zero.
Last night, to my regret, I attended a performance by Pilobolus in Page Auditorium under the auspices of the American Dance Festival. I love Pilobolus, and they were probably as great as usual, if only I could have actually seen them. Page auditorium is the worst conceivable venue for a dance company. I’m an average height guy and our seats were in the middle of the orchestra. No one ahead of me was abnormally tall, but their heads effectively blocked half my view. What good is choreography when the audience can’t see half of the stage? Apparently, some of the performance involved projections on screens close to the deck and the use of chairs as props. I wouldn’t know – all I saw was bobbing and weaving heads as the people ahead of me craned their necks to see (me in counterpoint). I’m very disappointed in ADF for this unconscionable choice of venue.

An economic moral discussion with speakers Rev. Barber & Sen. Bernie Sanders. Duke was kind to simultaneously broadcast the program to Page, in order to handle the overflow that didn't have tickets to Duke Chapel.
