I heard Boy George and The Culture Club were coming to Boston and decided to get tickets for myself and a friend. I had never been to the Wang Theater and decided to get balcony seats. The theater is beautiful and there are no bad...More

Looks nice at first, but definitely some work needed when you look at walls with paint pealing and not lined up correctly with adjacent non-painted structures. Concession stand staff was less than friendly. Sound of Music performance was great, as to be expected.

This theater is gorgeous, there is no doubt about that. However, we got left center balcony seats (row AA, almost at the ceiling) and there was NO RAILING for the stairs. The individual stairs were also quite a bit more narrow and taller than your...More

Saw Sound of Music. Very good but this review is for the Wang Center itself, not the show. Very distracting! People were walking in looking for their seats ten minutes into the show. Ushers were walking around with flashlights. If you sat near the rear,...More

I finally got to enjoy the Wang. We had center seats in the mezzanine and it was a perfect evening! Yes it is snug and the lines for the bathroom can be long. This is more than made up for by the charm of the...More

Theater is old and uncomfortable. Sound system is poor. Compared to my recent trip to Disney World this theatre is from another century. The family next to us lost a cell phone down the heating vent under the seats. They were told this happens often...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
