    Sound isn't the best if you're right up front. Staff will give you a hard time for taking photos so be subtle about it. Venue best for seated Older Person events; it can't handle rock shows.

    2015 Best Comedy Club: "Big enough to command a prime Theater District spot but cozy enough to feel like an intimate club, the Wilbur has blossomed into Boston’s premier place for biggish-name comedy"

    The Wilbur is a great place to see non-music shows, particularly comedy shows; but the floor seats close the stage are a pain. Balcony seats are best, but don't offer all that much leg room.

    Agreeing with Emily about comedy seating. I had seats right next to the stage and I was miserable. Would have enjoyed the show a lot more in comfy balcony seats.

    Seating is a bit tight, but the venue brings in quality artists to make it worth the minor discomfort. Great, intimate spot to catch some stand-up comedy.

    Gorgeous theater and the best place in Boston for world-class comedy. Floor seating is the way to go. Balconies have zero leg room.

    The staff is super sweet and friendly, really cozy cool place to check out comedians. Womens bathroom is tiny but kind of adorable.

    Definitely try to get floor seats or balcony seating - the Mezzanine has very uncomfortable and tight seating for anyone over 5'2".

  • Emily Y.
    Mezzanine or Balcony seating is must for the comedy shows. Don't get squished into those tiny seats & tables on the ground floor.

    One of Boston's best theaters. There are so many good shows produced here you may have to take out a loan to see them all.

    It is so unbelievably hot in this place that it is unbearable. Second time that I have almost walked out because if the heat. Paying too much to not have the temp control. Melting....

    Boston Common Garage is a short walk from the Wilbur Theatre. On weekends and evenings (after 4PM) parking is just $11.

    cool club, bar location was awkward though causing lines throughout the theater. Great balcony seats.

    There is really no bad view from the Balcony. I prefer it to being far back and underneath.

    If you're tall, don't sit in the balcony seats. Long legs don't work in balcony seats.

    Common Sense: Try to be seated in the middle, the acoustics are much better

    The Wilbur has A+ social media marketing! Look for the signs for the show's official hash tag.
