The lobby was packed with excitement and the lush design dazzled your mind. The people in attendance were so happy to be there and everyone was friendly and gracious. The seating provided everyone with a very good view of the stage.

My husband and I just love going here. We saw An American in Paris a few weeks back. The theater is beautiful. The performances are always top notch. We went to the Wang/ Boch theater for a matinee. I just love the fact that we can go for an early dinner and enjoy a play then take the bus back... More

The show was good - entertaining, the leads had nice voices. It was not overcrowded. You can... More

We got tickets to see An American In Paris. I love this theater. It is ornate and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful (it was opening night and rainy so there was some confusion). I can't wait to go back for another production.

I saw the "An American In Paris" show. The music and the dancing was excellent. The acting was average. Unless you are physically fit do not buy tickets to seats in the balcony. You have to climb a lot of stairs.

We were here on Oct 5th to see Il Divo & were blown away by the beautiful theatre. The staff were great & one in particular spend about 20 mins telling us all about the owners & decoration of the place over the years. We loved it & Il Divo were absolutely fantastic.

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
