BOSTON CONCERT AND SHOW VENUES

Discover theatre, dance and more

If variety is the spice of life, venues are the seasoning for Boston’s performing arts. You may be watching a national touring band sing top hits in an open-air amphitheater overlooking the harbor at TD Garden. Or chilling to the Boston Pops amid replicas of Greek and Roman statues at Symphony Hall. Or catching a Broadway musical under glimmering chandeliers at the Citizens Bank Opera House. Many of our theaters were on the vaudeville circuit, back in the day. From intimate to enormous, there’s an option to suit your mood. See what’s playing where during your visit.
