Expanding on health guidelines required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of Boston, the Boch Center has adopted a comprehensive program of health safeguards designed to help stop the spread of pathogens including the virus that causes COVID-19.

Beginning September 14, all patrons are required to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the show. Guests will be asked to show their vaccination card or test results and a government issued ID prior to entering an event at the Wang or Shubert Theatres. The Boch Center requires all administrative staff members, ushers, security personnel, stagehands and vendors to be fully vaccinated. 

Masks will be required for all guests per City of Boston requirements.

Please note that restrictions and safety protocols may vary by performance. Be sure to visit your specific show's event details page and to carefully read our pre-performance emails for important information pertaining to your performance.

Safety Upgrades

We are thrilled to partner with ActivePure Technology, the fastest-acting, most powerful surface and air disinfecting technology available. The system evolved from the NASA space program and is now installed in both the Wang and Shubert Theatres. It inactivates up to 99.9 percent of surface and airborne contaminants, including the virus that causes COVID-19 and its variants.

The Boch Center has implemented a number of important safety measures to ensure a safe return to its theatres. In addition to the ActivePure air purifying system, the Center’s upgrades include:

  • Evolv - AI-based touchless security
  • Touchless water faucets
  • Contactless payment technology (box office and concessions)
  • Mobile ordering (concessions)
  • Hand sanitizing stations throughout the theatres
  • MERV-13 air filters
  • Increased outdoor air circulation
