Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre
he Wang Theatre hosts an impressive array of world-class Broadway, theater, music, dance, comedy, opera and film. Our broadbased programming offers something for everyone.
The performing arts have enjoyed a rich and distinguished history in Boston, reaching back nearly 200 years when Charles Bulfinch designed the city’s first playhouse in 1794. With over 85 years of history, the Wang Theatre remains a vital part of Boston’s cultural life and the anchor of Boston’s historic Theatre District.
This is the first time I go in for a concert and even tho is sold out is so easy to get in. There are multiple doors which made the lines go fast and there were multiple snack and drink bars as well. The bathrooms were never crowded and everything went so smoothly
The Wang theater is great, really close to public transportation and is a great venue to see multiple shows. The only thing is there's barely any leg room, I'm not a tall person and my knees were right against the seat in front of me. In the balcony it gets really hot too so take that into consideration when choosing seats. You could still see the show great though. They also serve snacks and beverages that you can bring into the theater.
As others have said, the theater is beautiful inside. The outer doors opened at 7:15 for an 8:00 show and we went upstairs and had to wait 20 minutes in a very hot hallway for the theater doors to open. Lots of people were commenting about how warm it was. Once the doors opened we went to our balcony seats and had to climb VERY steep steps. I have trouble with heights and started to feel queasy. I think I counted we climbed 70 steps from the ground level to our seats. We felt really far away from the stage. The surcharge for the tickets was $15/ticket which we thought was very steep also. It tacked on an extra $45 bucks for the three of us. I am a short woman and I found the seats small and tight. For these reasons I would definitely not go back to this theater again.
I have visited here several times, the most recent seeing Elf the Musical with my family. I have to say that the customer service at the Wang is one of the best I have seen. Their professionalsm and "customer care" goes above and beyond. Keep up the good work!
I was there to see Dancing with Stars show. It is a beautiful theater but seats are uncomfortable. I am short and my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Here is picture of knees.
