CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Blumenthal Performing Arts and Lighthouse Immersive announced that Immersive Van Gogh is extending its run for the second time through Jan. 2, 2022.

“The reach of Immersive Van Gogh has been staggering,” Blumenthal CEO Tom Gabbard said. “As the first indoor, live entertainment to hit the Charlotte market since the pandemic shutdown, it’s noteworthy that more than 75% of Van Gogh ticket buyers are attending an event in one of our venues for the first time, with a huge percentage of folks coming in from out of town. We are especially proud of the impact this is having on the local economy after a tough year and a half. To be extending for a second time amidst the continued effects of COVID-19 and the delta variant is extraordinary.”
