Poor sight lines, zero leg room. Have attended live theatre all over North America and have never encountered a line for the ladies' restroom like this one.Lined up immediately at start of intermission. No exaggeration about 150 people ahead of me . Intermission over and a lineup of still about 30 women. While climbing down to our seats they turned... More

Had great seats and everyone was so friendly and helpful. We are really enjoying the performance and would recommend the venue for other events.

Enjoyed the Boston Ballet: Shades of Sound. Purchased a last minute seat. Perfect view and enjoyed the show. Clea, classic old building!

As others have said, this theatre lets people in even after the show starts. If you want to see the show, Don't pay money here, see it somewhere else. They do not care if you see none of it! I know, I asked to see the manager and explained it is a big deal for my family to buy tickets... More

Had a great time seeing Mowtown the Musical. Glad to see that I can sit in there seats. I'm 6'4 so seating for me can be difficult. I would have liked to see more audience participation but even so a great entertaining show. Can't wait to go back.

We've been here five times for The Nutcracker. It's a good excuse to dress up and most of the attendees do. If I had to criticize I'd say that they should open their doors earlier (1/2 hour maybe?), as there is just a "crush" of people trying to get into their seats at the same time, which takes some of...

MY first visit ever to the Boston Opera House - a wonderful venue to see the touring cast of Motown, the musical. So happy to be in a venue that actually has seats that aren't made for people who only weigh 95 pounds! Thank you. The 2.5 hour show was a happy, sing-along ride down music memories. So glad to...

Let me begin by saying that visit to Boston Opera House is a treat. It's not the same grand scale as Metropolitan Opera or European theaters. Yet, it is decorated with "old world" charm and flare. It is conveniently located in and easy to incorporate into a nice evening/outing in town. We went to see Shen Yun with another family... More
