WE attended the "Disney on Broadway" performance. I honestly wasn't too excited when my wife ordered the tickets. I was delighted with the concert featuring four marquee performers belting out the tunes. It was really spectacular!

My husband and I experienced The Boston Pops for the first time at Christmas. This was one of the most amazing experiences for us. We have visited a number of symphonies around the country and this one is first class.

What a great program. Truly entertaining. One of the most enjoyable experiences we have had. The Boston Pops played while Looney Tunes cartoon played on a big screen. Hope they do it again next year.
