A basic high school performance of Romeo and Juliet would have been much more satisfying than this piece of drek. The acting was uniformly over-the-top and stiff. I wish the acting was worse, because then it would have actually been funny. I wish I had...More
We enjoyed the free Shakespeare production out on the lawn of Boston Common. There is something magical about watching one of the world's oldest well-known playwright's production performed in one of America's oldest parks. It was easy to hear the actors and most seats are...More

Enjoyed a wonderful performance of King Lear on Boston Common. Great Acting and the sound system was amazing-you could hear everything including the heavy breathing. What an amazing way to see Shakespeare.

A brilliant, free way to spend a summer's evening. I was entirely accidentally in Boston at the right time of year to take advantage of this wonderful event. It was a hot, sunny day with clear skies and a beautiful evening. Though this is a...More

I spent part of my birthday enjoying this season's production of Shakespeare on the Common (Twelfth Night) and it was delightful! I was so pleasantly surprised at the amount of production put into this completely free show for the public. The sound was great, so...More
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
