This humorous production of two elderly female roommates in a nursing home is excellent. The theater may hold around 300 people and your seat is near the action. The seven actors are all perfect for their respective roles and the play is fast-moving. A great...More

We have been to a number of theatres in Boston and this one is on the medium to small side and has a certain charm. Some of the seat cushions were stained and ripped and areas of the carpet should be replaced. The balcony seats...More

was recently in Boston and caught the Huntington Theatre's production of Sunday in the Park with George. The visual aspects were stunning and the music (singers and orchestra) were superb. Particularly the tough horn part! I wish I could have stayed longer and gone again....More

This is a superb theater with a great company. BU wanted to tear down the theater and sell the space for big bucks, but the community rallyed around our beloved theater and said "no". It is safe for the moment. Productions are innovative, always superbly...More

The performance was at the Huntington's Calderwood Theater and it was a perfect setting for this show. The actors and "signers" were all excellent. The story was compelling - and very heavy - but overall it was a very unique experience. Was a tad bit...More

Incredibly talented actors. Wry, poignant, on-target script. Highly recommend - bring your teens, bring your elderly relatives who don't understand teens for peek into their lives. Kudos Huntington!

Missed seeing Disgraced on Broadway & pleased to catch it here. Actors wonderful & play won a Pulitxer. Very timely theme of racism, prejudice & paranoia in America.

I have to echo another reviewer and say there is not a bad seat in the house because the theater is small and intimate. Although the seats are small, we never got the"packed like sardine" feeling that can befall some newer venues that want to...More

I saw the excellent world premiere of A Conferederacy of Dunces at the Huntington Theatre. Though they could certainly have opened the theatre doors about 30 minutes earlier, the house was beautiful. All seats seemed to have an excellent view of the stage. Sound system...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports
