Shubert and Wang (not part of the "Boch Center") feel like the unloved orphans of the Boston theatre scene. Visions of past grandeur are quickly overcome by shabbiness. Instead of selling "named" chairs, perhaps the new administration could consider putting some money into maintenance. Front...More

Went to see "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" (awesome!) and was happy with the theatre. I have long legs, and I thought the seats were roomy compared with similar venues in NYC. I sat in the Orchestra section near the back and visibility...More

Went to see Priscilla Queen of the Dessert. Boy it was funny. Had a great view and the restoration of the old theatre was very good. But, not as good as the Majestic Theater in San Antonio!

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
