“Very nice theater but no tight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We are six feet tall and the orch. legroom was quite tight. Not fun for an otherwise delightful opera in a beautiful theater. We think its is time for folks to complain and vote with their hind ends. Come on theaters - we are not sardines!! The Opera House is much more comfortable. Symphony Hall and the Wang are okay.

“NICE THEATER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

One of the major theaters in town. But also one of the smaller ones. Shows here are intimate and nicely done. Front seats in the dress circle boxes are slightly obstructed - not enough so to ruin any show but noticeable. Best seats are straight on orchestra or balcony though all except box seats area bit cramped. Do not be deterred by anything.

“Comedy show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

A beautiful, old style theater where we caught a stand-up comedy show. The seats were comfortable, the sound was excellent, the attendants were helpful and we would go back for another show.

“A Lovely Piece of Historic Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

The theater really is a wonderful old place and is in great shape. Seats are comfortable. There don't appear to be any bad seats in the house. The staff is courteous and helpful. And the show we saw, Addams Family, was amazing. The acoustics are great as well in this Boston gem and there is lots of reasonably (for Boston) priced parking.

Required complaint: The bathrooms are down a really long flight of stairs!! But, they have to be in order to maintain the historic integrity of the theater. There is an accessible bathroom on the main floor.
