On-Going Shows in Boston's Theatre District

Blue Man Group

Don't wear your good clothes (hint: they hand out rain ponchos) but do expect to have a ton of fun at Boston's funniest show put on by bald blue guys.  None-stop story-telling, comedy, music, theatrics, and audience interaction.  Perfect family show for all ages.

Shear Madness

Blue Man Group tickets - Boston MA theaterCharles Playhouse:  On-Going
Part theater, part improv, Shear Madness revolves around a zany plot featuring a murder in a hair salon, but audience involvement means the show has a different ending every night - so you can see it more than once for lots of laughs and entertainment.  Best for children 13 and over, unless you want to explain all the innuendos (or count on your kids not to understand them).

The Donkey Show

The Donkey Show at the OberonOberon:  On-Going
70s disco hits and a great dance floor set the stage for The Donkey Show - but that's just the beginning.  Mirror balls, feathered divas, roller skaters, and hustle queens inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream are part of an interactive show that unfolds around you. 


Boston Insider Tips:  Getting to Boston's Theaters

Boston's compact size means that if you're staying in central Boston, you can easily walk to the Theatre District theaters.

But if you're driving into the city for a performance, you will need a place to park. 

To find the closest garages, check out our suggestions for nearby parking.  There are also a few small lots near Washington Street.

For the easiest parking experience - "easiest" meaning you're not gridlocked in our 1-lane, 1-way streets around the Theatre District when all the shows end - park in the huge garage under Boston Common and walk a block or two to your theater.
