Ritz-Carlton Boston Embraces 'Comedy of Errors'
Thereís something goofy about a hotel package thatís called the ďComedy of Errors.Ē Yeah yeah, we know, itís a classic Shakespeare play, but we canít help but wonder if itís one of those lower-your-guestsí-expectations sorts of ploys. Well, no, probably not, but weíre allowed to poke fun.
In all seriousness, Beantown-bound thespians that feel like splurging might like this VIP package at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common. Coinciding with Bostonís annual free Bard performances on Boston Common, the Commonwealth Shakespeare Comedy of Errors Package offers luxury accommodations, VIP seats, and a picnic dinner to a lucky pair.
Specifically, the package includes overnight stay in a deluxe city view guest room at the Ritz, which is a five-minute walk to Boston Common; two VIP seats to the theatre performance, which offers up-close views and VIP restrooms; and a choice of either a picnic dinner for two on the Common or a three-course dinner for two in the hotelís Jer-Ne Restaurant. In the event that severe rain cancels the performance, guests get a $50 food and drink credit for use at the hotel during their stay.
The 14th annual Shakespeare on the Common production, The Comedy of Errors, will be performed July 31st through Aug. 16. The package is offered those same days, with rates starting at $535 for double occupancy, plus an extra $85 per extra child or adult.
