About Theatre District
Boston is a city not only rich in Revolutionary history but also a city with a rich and diverse theatre district. There is something for everyone in Boston?s Theater District, from the young to the young at heart. Just south of the financial district in an area of the city known as Chinatown you will find Boston?s Theatre District.
This part of the city has come a long way in the past two decades and what was once termed the ?combat zone? is now home to some wonderful theatrical choices. On the lower end of Washington Street are the magnificently restored Opera House and The Charles Playhouse. Boston also plays host to the historic Shubert and Colonial and Wilbur Theaters as well as the very impressive Wang Center for the Performing Arts. Every possible detail has been painstakingly taken to bring these structures back to their original splendor and it is a pleasure of sight and sound to visit any one of them.
These historic theaters play host to all the newest Broadway hits. Boston is often the debut city before going to NY, so you can see it here first. There are also many smaller theaters that offer comedy, dinner shows, and many other forms of theatrical arts. The theater district also consists of over 200 eateries and night-spots that are open late; perfect for that after theater snack or dancing.
