    Restrooms downstairs; expect a long line for both men and women during intermission

    Eric Andersen · January 13, 2014
  • Timm M.

    Theater is very wide, so seats on extreme sides may be obstructed/limited view. But on the plus side, are likely discounted!

    Timm McIntosh · January 12, 2014
  • Jake W.

    The men's room smells like smarties but good luck finding it.

  • Kevin L.

    If you can get it, the best seats in the house are always in the "Dress Circle."

    Kevin Liu · March 18, 2013
  • Shepard

    Crap that you can't take pictures of this amazing structure or yourselves even before the show. #ridiculous

    Shepard · December 31, 2012
  • SiLan

    Get half-priced tickets for lots of shows at or go to their kiosks at Faneuil Hall or Copley Square early for day of show tickets.

    Thursday night young partners is the best night to go. Check out the after party.

    Bryan Flynn · February 17, 2012
  • Al S.

    Be respectful and courteous and don't take any pictures or use your cell phone during a performance. There's a reason the ushers get angry when you snap pics: It's rude and annoying.

    Al S · February 12, 2012
  • Angelos N.

    Staff can be a little annoying with the whole "no picture taking" deal.

    The nutcracker was tons of fun this year. Great for kids and their parents.

    Benjamin Glassner · December 21, 2011
  • Samantha M.

    If you get there late and you're, "on hold" ask about balcony seats for the current act instead of watching the screens. Still a great view and you can get your real seats after intermission.

    Samantha McDuffee · December 20, 2011
  • Eileen C.

    young or young at heart? get your Nutcracker paper crowns during intermission in the lobby! can't stop wearing them.

    The Nutcracker is the prettiest I've seen in the country. So far. Well done. Be sure to look at all the lovely renovations.
