The Wang Theatre is definitely aesthetically pleasing, but it lacks the charm of the Boston Opera House. Okay, now that I've got that minor whine out of my system, I'll focus on the positives:
1. Due to the layout of the auditorium, it's hard to get a bad seat.
2. Lots of leg room between the rows, which is rare in a city full of older theatres.
3. Large, comfortable seats.
4. Great acoustics.
5. Lots of parking.
6. Easy to get to via public or private transport.
7. Good crowd control before and after shows.
8. Diverse selection of shows.

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.

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.

Catch a show here if you can. It is a beautiful old theater that is great to see any show. A real Boston experience.
