We've been to the Wang Theater numerous times. It certainly has a lot of great aspects, but it has some frustrating ones, too. The best part of the theater is that it's absolutely beautiful. The interior of the theater is just incredible to see. It really gives whatever event you're watching a classier feel. There is obviously a lot of... More

Saw Eddie Izzard play here in May. Helpful staff, quickly seated. Pretty large lines for everything (food, drink, bathroom) but they move quickly. Beautiful building. Would return for another show.

You cannot get more beautiful interior painting and stonework than in the Wang and the other nearby theaters. It's like being brought back into another time when you walk in and look up toward the ceiling. With that, of course, that means that the building is a bit dated for modern times... small bathrooms with limited accessibility, and not a... More

Saw heartbeat of Home last night at the Wang!! I love this venue. It is absolutely beautiful. The theatre is not huge so there isn't really a bad seat The only negative is the seats are Very small. Kinda claustrophobic. But once the show started I forgot about how cramped I was. If you are tall try to sit on... More

This is a beautiful facility and an excellent location to see any type of performance. The staff is highly responsive and caring. Considering the age of the original building it is well appointed to accommodate patrons with all types of physical needs. High marks for the Wang Center

This is a beautiful place to watch a show. The lobby is fantastic with its columns and painted ceiling. The seating is very comfortable with great sight lines and a great elevation between rows. Great location. One of the truly fantastic renovated theatres.

I love to go into Boston to see a good play. The Wang Theatre has been there for years and I always enjoy going there. Right in the heart of Boston with restaurants all around. Many parking garages. And they have very good entertainment come in.

The Wang Theatre is definitely aesthetically pleasing, but it lacks the charm of the Boston Opera House. Okay, now that I've got that minor whine out of my system, I'll focus on the positives: 1. Due to the layout of the auditorium, it's hard to get a bad seat. 2. Lots of leg room between the rows, which is rare... More

Love attending performances at The Wang. Great for kids as we stay across the street at Marriott. Close to all theaters, easy access to all of Boston.
