If you want to catch an off-Broadway production while you Explore Boston, the Theater District will provide the perfect backdrop for a matinee or evening out. The first theater opened its doors in 1793, and new additions to Boston's active stages have come and gone ever since. The Boch Center, Boston Opera House, Colonial, and Orpheum Theater are only a few of the 11 remaining houses. Many cling to their Victorian architecture while upgrading services inside for contemporary audiences. The neighborhood is also overflowing with some of the most notable restaurants in town, completing your night out experience.
