Popular Places to Catch a Play

BXP26191Watching the Tonys the other night reminded me of how great it can be to see a live play.  There is something about a live performance whether it be a play or a concert that creates something special making it different and most of the time even better than a movie, TV, or CD.  There are a lot of different places to see plays locally and the tickets come in a wide variety of prices.  Here is a list of popular places to catch a play:
