  • The architecture in this building is breathtaking and beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We watched the Illusionists and the show was amazing and engaging. At times we were at the edge of our seats in suspense and at other times was laughing so hard tears were running down our cheeks. The Illusionists was awesome!
  • Tonight's show * Pink Floyd laser spectacular, March 29th. This is beautiful elegant theatre, easily noticeable since front entrance make over. A short walk away from Boylston Green line train station. Like 100 feet away. If you arrive early, the area is nice to stroll around and see. Plenty of parking garages all within 5 to10 minutes walking from theatre.
