Summer Season in Washington Post

Jacqueline Trescott's article on our summer season appears in today's Washington Post. There's one error people should be aware of in the article...the free Summer Blast-Off event with the U.S. Marine Band and fireworks is listed as happening on May 25, when the show is actually on Sunday, May 27. That's one of the most popular nights of the year here and we don't want people showing up on the wrong date, so please make a note of that if you're heading out here for it.

Box office opening day is tomorrow. Get your tickets early and don't forget that you can save on service charges by coming to the Filene Center box office to get your tickets.
