Since 1903, the Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College has been providing year round cultural programs to both college students and visitors. The historic college located in the Theater District owns and operates the theater, which offers a wide-range of performances that include opera (La Traviatta; Madama Butterfly), theater (Divas by Boston’s Gay Men’s Chorus), dance (Stomp) and music (New England Conservatory). Inside, you will find beautiful murals painted by New York artist William de Leftwich Dodge, whose works can also be found on display at the Library of Congress and Boston Public Library.
The theater is listed in both the Massachusetts and National Registers of Historic Places, and has also earned the prominent status as a Boston Historic Landmark. Over the past few years, it underwent some renovations that were approved by the Boston Landmarks Commission.
The Majestic has both historically appropriate stage systems and the most modern technologies for stage and video productions, which is why it is known around town as being a 21st century theater inside a 19th century building.
Explosive and provocative theatre with a twist is what’s being presented at the intimate space that is the New Theatre, and it’s been happening here that way for 23 years. The quality of plays continues to get stronger as the playwrights and artistic and managing directors constantly collaborate to bring award-winning theater to South Florida.
Lovers of live theatre will recognize New Theatre playwright Nilo Cruz, who wrote the Broadway hit Anna in the Tropics, as one of the many writers churning out hits here. There are many surprises here, regularly offering seasons that feature classics like Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew alongside an original work by local favorite Michael McKeever, who has been exciting audiences with his original plays for years.
In other words, there’s something for every taste here, and that’s always been the theatre’s forte.

If you want to take the experience of Warner Theatre on another level, opt for the Grand Suite seating and view the performance in true style. Check the Warner Theatre’s website for a complete list of all the upcoming performances.

If you’re looking to check out a show while in town, chances are you’ll be heading over to the Wang Theatre where Louis XVI’s opulence and the Roaring Twenties come together at the Citi Performing Arts Center.

The center opened in 1925 and today boasts one of the five largest stages in the country. The theater has seen numerous performances, including the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Riverdance, The Kirov Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick Jr., Dave Matthews, Lady Gaga, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera.

The Walnut Street Theatre is the oldest theater in America, having just celebrated its 200th birthday last year, and is one of the most subscribed to and most successful theater companies in the nation.
With performances ranging from the classics like Oliver and Fiddler on the Roof, to the intimate shows put on in the 80-seat Independence Studio, Walnut Street serves up an eclectic and exciting mix of productions throughout the year.
Soup to nuts (or nuts to nuts since we’re talking about the Walnut) the Theatre has its hand in all aspects of the performance. The Walnut’s fabrication and wardrobe department is located above the main stage, and creates all of the looks for actors on stage, including hair and make-up. They also have auditions in New York and Philadelphia for the main stage performances that have launched the careers of Kathryn Hepburn, Jane Fonda, and Marlon Brando, to name a few.
What happens when you take a Tony Award-winning director and a Grammy Award-winning album and put it together on stage? The new musical American Idiot. Based on Green Day’s politically charged hit album, this rock opera is moving to the big stage of NYC after an amazingly successful run in Berkeley, California. It is about a group of young, working-class men who come to America from the Middle East and find themselves in the confusion of post-9/11 America. It’s the same great storyline in NYC, but with a twist; Michael Mayer, the director of the smash Spring Awakening, will also be directing this cutting edge musical.
An affordable evening of culture and class? You bet. The Winspear Opera House is the crown jewel of One Arts Plaza, boasting seating for 2,200 with retractable screens, variable acoustics and a spectacular view of the skyscrapers of downtown Dallas.
Enjoy your own Phantom of the Opera moment as the enormous chandelier appears to float above the room until the lights dim for the show, and then slowly ascends into the ceiling and disappears. Speaking of grand performances, take in family friendly Broadway shows like Beauty and the Beast, the legendary Pointer Sisters, or more mature favorites like Avenue Q.
The acoustics rival Broadway theaters and bring the orchestra to life in an intimate way, no matter where your seats are located. During intermission, browse the lobby area and coffee bar for the delicious treats and fine drinks. Tickets begin at $25, providing affordable date nights, family outings and group excursions. And remember, the good times aren’t over until the fat lady sings.
Whether mixing business with pleasure or date night with personal enjoyment, either way you look at it, visiting the Pantages Theater for an exciting show is well worth it. Built in the 1930’s, the Pantages features some of the best live performances Los Angeles has to offer. With over 2,500 seats in the huge auditorium, this theater is the best place to go to when you’re in the mood for a piece of old Los Angeles history mixed with new and exciting features.
Currently featuring dance performances such as Stomp and Riverdance, the Pantages is always featuring the newest and most popular shows as well as live numbers L.A. has yet to see.
If you are in the mood for penguin suits and ritzy gowns, you might want to turn the other way. The dress code is far more casual than usual theater attire and the casual vibe is easily matched.
Not many discount ticket booths get the kind of attention that TKTS receives, like a star-studded grand opening and Jay-Z and Alicia Keys singing on its steps in their ode to New Yoooork, but this place is worth all the praise.
For years this gem of Broadway has been stuck un-glamorously under the Marriot Marquis, a hidden secret for the ticket savvy. Now, after some major construction, the new TKTS Times Square booth is open- and saying it’s better than ever is a serious understatement. It’s not in the heart of Times Square, it is Times Square. The booth, located under the can’t-miss red steps, has transformed Duffy Square into a Broadway fan and tourist photo-op heaven.
Thankfully, the generous discounts are still the same with up to half-off for same-day performances of Broadway favorites Chicago, Jersey Boys, Monty Python… you name it, TKTS still has it. But with this makeover, now you can actually find the booth and it’s clearly stated before you enter the long line what show tickets are up for grabs.
Discount tickets have never looked so good.

The Wizard of Oz is as passé as Dorothy whining and keeping someone else’s ruby slippers. The Broadway Musical Wicked takes the audience back, way before Dorothy, to the building relationship between magic boarding school roommates, Wicked Witch of the West aka Elphaba and Glinda later named the Good Witch. It is a story of popularity, love and a very unlikely friendship.
