We recent saw Irving Berlin's white christmas great show! I highly recommend it if it returns again the future! My only complaint is that the seats were a bit on the small side. I felt squashed sitting next to my neighbor and husband. Otherwise, very pleasurable experience!

Boston natives are tough - from fierce weather and other travails. Going to the Wang Center is more of the same. Some pros: Easy access & parking via car; convenient T stops; interesting performances; beautiful décor. Most seats have decent view. Good sound system. Some cons: Limited public space pre show and intermission. Bathrooms below volume needed for size of... More

Not a bad seat in the house, staff was extremely nice and friendly, and the venue is absolutely beautiful. Heard it was built in the 1920's as a movie theater, and was restored to it's original state. Just gorgeous inside.

We purchased tickets "in error" up in the balcony - in one of the last 10 rows and thought we would have a horrible time! We were really wrong! Our 10 year old was freaking out because she loves the theatre and thought we wouldn't be able to see anything. She had a wonderful time and we all realized that... More

We came to town for a program with the Dalai Lama and it was held at this venue. The Wang is a restored theater from the Golden Age and it is simply magnificent. Everything about it is beautiful except for the seats which are a little too close and narrow for comfort over any length of time (we were in... More

Incredible sound, beautiful venue, nice staff, not a bad seat in the house. We were in the first row of the balcony. It was our first visit but would love to go back for another show.
