COLONIAL

One of the most surprising things about the Emerson Colonial Theatre in Boston is how unassuming it is from the street. Sure, it looks like a professional venue, but that doesn’t prepare you for what happens when you step inside: You’re transported into a shimmering palace, full of gold and chandeliers and beautifully intricate architecture. That majesty is fitting, since the Colonial has debuted some of the most important shows in theatrical history.
