About the Event

Event Thursday, May 13, 2021 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Join Scott Towers as he takes us on a never-before-seen tour of the Wang Theatre.

The Boch Center Wang Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been one of the premier theatrical destinations in Boston since opening in 1925. Rivaled by few other theatres in the world, it boasts a seating capacity of 3,500 and one of the five largest stages in the U.S.

  • Learn about the theatre’s architectural highlights and unique history – from its hotel roots and glamorous days as a movie “cathedral”, to today’s role as an impressive venue for performances and events.
  • Visit the same dressing rooms and hallways once walked by entertainers like Ella Fitzgerald, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Queen, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Liza Minnelli and more! Your experience will include a live walkthrough of the theatre as well as historic images and prerecorded content.

Tour will take place via Zoom.
