The Cher Show - What an amazing theater. As soon as you walk in you are in awe of how beautiful this theater is. It is so ornately decorated. From my vantage point it did not seem like there was a bad seat in the house. The seats were very comfortable and there was plenty of room between each row. It was a pleasant theater experience and would definitely like to go back to see other shows in the future.

Tour The Boch Center Wang Theatre & Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame - Ordering tickets to historic filled theatre in Boston was easy with a great price. Tour started at entrance of building, which was locked when we arrived, we didn't know if it was cancelled or if we were at wrong location. I called number on ticket several times before someone answered and said to just wait. Tour was amazing, being lead from floor to floor even backstage and lower level of theatre by the guide who was informative and waited for everyone before he began to talk. Parking was not onsite and was hectic to find. After tour I presented my parking ticket for credit and was told they do not honor parking tickets. I would have walked to theatre if I knew they wouldn't pay parking; which was part of the ticket offer.

A special afternoon at the Wang Theater - So helpful when making reservations and even when it was necessary to reschedule due to illness. Our guide was outstanding and so knowledgeable about the history and special exhibitions.

Rare gem hidden in the city - This was simply amazing! Vee was our tour guide and as it was only a small group gave us extra time in the music experience areas which were a great addition as I wasn’t expecting these. The theatre itself is just amazing and really spectacular, I would say it’s more grand than majority of the London theatres, just breathtaking as you go into the main lobby. Best of the tour was you actually get to go all the way upto the orchestra pit AND onto the stage!!! Which you never ever get to do. This was a highlight for me seeing the stage from the performers view. Definitely a must do your for anyone who loves theatre, performing arts or general history and architecture.

History, Architecture and Music Memorabilia in Theater District Gem - Boston is steeped in history. The Wang Center is a delicious slice of that history. Recently restored to its original opulence, just the opportunity to explore it free of crowds is worth the price of admission. Our guide Scott’s entertaining and engaging stories elevated the experience. Add a fantastic collection of Americana Roots memorabilia and you have yourself a winner. Highly recommended for dyed in the wool Bostonians and visitors alike.

Fascinating & informative tour. - An interesting and informative tour of this beautiful theatre. Wonderful learning about the history, discovering hidden features (that are actually not hidden but never noticed when visiting for a show!), seeing the backstage areas with the murals and messages from past performers. The Hall of Fame displays are fascinating. Highly recommend this tour.
