The image above shows the location of the theater production on the Boston Common. I suggest arriving early to ensure you can be within sight of the stage. When I attend, I like to make a quick stop at the Roche Bros in Downtown Crossing to stock up on snacks and drinks – food is available on the Common but options are somewhat limited.
