Durham's been making all kinds of lists for its cool factor recently, and here's one more:
The renowned theater lost out only to the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City in the magazine’s 2012 Midyear Worldwide Ticket Sales count from the top 100 theater venues, nabbing the silver with a whopping 223,641 tickets sold for shows played between Jan. 1 and June 30 of this year.
To top it off, The Carolina Theatre placed on the list as well. With 32,678 tickets sold worldwide, the Carolina came in at the 88 spot. For our city's size, having two world-class theaters down the street from each other definitely adds to the collective list of many, many reasons why Durham is so awesome.
