The 2300 seat theatre has been restored to its former glory an will host Broadway productions and concerts. The venue is at Federal Sq, which is a the corners of Main, Southbridge and Federal Sts, across from the Federal Courthouse. The area is seedy, but not dangerous, and had already witnessed many improvements in the wake of this project.

15 years ago nobody had a problem going down there to see a movie. The biggest problem is the parking garage across the street. They need to be sure to clean that up. Hopefully this will get some life flowing back into that section of town.

Good to see things getting better along Main Street. Not one of my favorite parts of town, this should help.

I drove by tonight aroun 7pm. It was great to see loads of people, cars and limos jamming the area. The theatre looked great too, all lit up with spotlights shining in the sky. This will be a really great anchor for the south end of downtown. They are looking at doing 200 shows per year at the venue.

I am a volunteer usher at the Hanover and it is so awesome to see people getting all dressed up to come to shows, shows are selling out and people can't stop gushing about the fact that there is this beautiful theatre so close and so much more inexpensive than going to Boston. I have worked "Hairspray" which was a completly full house and well done for the 1st "broadway" show to come to the theatre. Then I worked the WPA Extravaganza which was local artist, musicans and dancers. Tonight I am getting in my penquin suit to work David Copperfield. The staff of the theatre has really come together and seem to be working out the small issues that arise. And us Volunteers are having a great time also...

Please people come to the shows and see how fantastic it can be so close to home.

Also the theatre has bought out the attached store fronts so it may turn them into a classy eating establishments...

I have been to 2 shows & the theatre is great. My wife & I love to go to the Opera House in Boston & this is just as good. We just got tickets to the Ramsey Lewis/Fourplay concert in June. Can't wait

I was at the Hanover on Thursday. I must say, quite impressive the job they did. Looks really great inside. Good thing to happen to downtown and the city.

All the mirrors inside though... not a fan of that.
