Nice venue...good site lines...productions are well worth the ticket prices I enjoyed this venue as a kid...back then it was an old vaudville house that had been converted to a movie theatre.... if you're thinking dinner on Shrewsbury Street and then heading over to the show.....eat real early, as traffic heading to the parking garage directly across the street has...

I've been here for several events. The box office staff has always seemed a bit curt to me. Seats aren't very comfortable. They allow people to bring drinks to their seats and it gets noisy and dirty. There are no restaurants within walking distance. I wish they would spruce up the area to make for a more pleasant night out.

This refurbished theater is a real gem. Each season includes 6 shows in the subscription series plus many other shows at very reasonable prices. I recently saw Diana Ross on tour at the Hanover. Here you can buy an orchestra seat for what you would pay for a balcony seat in New York City. The box office is extremely accommodating... More

Very nice renovation and updating of a great old theatre. The Façade and entry area much improved but the inside remains almost the same as the movie theatre that I saw Ben-Hur in as a young man 50yrs ago. So bravo, great job!!! Parking garage right across the street is a very handy extra.

We go to shows here 2-3 times a year. It's a grandly restored theater, very comfortable, however there seems to be less leg room in the last row on the floor. We always try to get seats on the main floor. The balcony section is not terrible, but there are some obstructed view seats that are clearly identified when you... More

This is my favorite venue to see a show. Small and not a bad seat in the house, it's always a special treat to see a show or concert at the Hanover. Beautifully decorated, and easily assessable, this theater makes you feel very special whatever performance you chose to attend. It is truly a special night out to o to... More

This is a beautiful old theater that has been superbly referbished. The entertainment is of good quality, and there isn't a bad seat in the house.
