It's nice to have a place with the atmosphere and quality of shows that the Hanover Theater delivers. We drive 3 hours to come to performances here and are never disappointed.

This is a lovely venue. The orchestra seating was very comfortable and the acoustics excellent for the
recent Johnny Mathis concert.

The theater is a wonderful Worcester facility which hosts many fine performers and productions.

Have been to the Hanover multiple times and the experience is always great. The inside has been re-done to look like it did when I was a child. Easy to to. Recommend parking in the lot next to the library, just a couple of dollars and 3-4 minute walk.

This place is beautiful! It’s staff are friendly and you really feel engaged. I feel no seat is a bad seat in the theatre. The parking and area is a little rough but that’s downtown Worcester. Arrive early!

We saw a performance of the Capitol Steps (A wonderfully funny political satire music group - worth finding!). The theater itself was an old theater refurbished to its old glory from the early 20th Century! Very friendly staff who went way out of their way to make every customer feel welcome!
