December 9, 2014 – We ventured down to the Alewife station and then took the Red Line into town to see The Piano Guys at the Wang Theatre. The theatre itself is a gorgeous older, well-maintained theatre with large staircases, views over the central space from the various landings, and an ornate ceiling.
The Piano Guys started the concert in near total darkness. We thought it was just part of the show, but it turns out the house lights were having problems and needed to be reset. So they just laughed about it, hung out on stage and tried telling jokes. Once the lights came on again they made more jokes, then started the show over. As good as they sound on YouTube, they’re ever-so-slightly-better live. The show was about 2 hours, with an intermission, and ended with a singalong to Silent Night. We highly recommend their music and shows, particularly if you can go around Christmas time.
