Love attending performances at The Wang. Great for kids as we stay across the street at Marriott.
Close to all theaters, easy access to all of Boston.

“NICE THEATRE”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

The WANG is probably the premier theater in Boston and it runs some o the best shows. It is one of the bigger theaters and,perhaps because of that, it is able to do some shows that others cannot. Most seats are good and all shows are - depending on your tastes. Add $20+ to park for any show.

“Good show in a beautiful theater”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

We saw The Grinch this past weekend. The show was enjoyable. The sound wasn't the greatest but we weren't disappointed. The real treat was being inside the beautiful Wang Theater. The decorations added to the festivities.
