Yelpers love the old-school feel of the Wang Theatre, giving it 4.5 stars. Here's a sampling of their comments:
- "As a born and raised Boston girl, I am still enamored with the grandeur of the Wang. It's old school classy and everytime I'm there I feel like I'm transported back in time and going to the theater with my long cigarette holder and elbow length gloves." – Jessica F.
- "This place is gorgeous. I'd say there is not a bad seat in the house." – Melissa M.
- "The Wang is beautiful and so very ornate. The bathrooms are just as extravagant. The ushers tend to be sweet older people who direct you to your spot with their little flashlights and a splash of sass. The accoustics [sic] are super and the seats are pretty darn comfy." – Bridget D.
