New to Celebrity Series? Haven't attended one of our events before?

Celebrity Series is committed to welcoming new audiences to our performances around greater Boston. You have a lot of choices for arts and entertainment, and we want to make it easier to say yes to attending your first Celebrity Series performance, so you're invited to choose a show from the list below and get amazing seats for just $20!

Come as you are: audience members wear clothing that they're comfortable in, but please be sure to check before you attend to see if a mask is required! Venues may have different policies that could change as the season goes on.

No matter which show you choose, we hope you have a great experience and that it's just the first of many!
