The Weather Outside May Be Frightful

1197487403Buying tickets to a show during the holidays is a dicey proposition. But we here at Boston Daily forgot the biggest variable of the holiday season in New England—the weather.

Yes, we’ve got tickets to a Sunday matinee of A Celtic Christmas Sojourn. It’s a 3 p.m. show, which should put us right at the tail end of the epic nor’easter that’s heading our way.

Take it away, Dylan Dreyer.

Saturday night and Sunday, models are hinting (basically flat out telling us) that the weather set up is ideal for a major nor’easter. As of now, I think it’ll be an all snow event that has the potential of dumping nearly a foot of snow!

You don’t need to sound so happy about it.

Since we’re trying to figure out how to get our out-of-town guest here before the highways turn into a giant cross-country skiing opportunity, we thought we’d do you a favor and call some of Boston’s biggest holiday productions to check on their policies for bad weather refunds or cancellations.

Boston Pops
Symphony Hall has a dedicated snow line for ticketholders to get information on cancellations. You can call them at 617-638-9495 for updates.

A Celtic Christmas Sojourn
The event, which is held at the Cutler Majestic Theater, is in all likelihood going to go on. “We canceled a show during a blizzard about three years ago,” a staffer told us, “but we usually don’t close for bad weather.” Guess somebody’s spending the night at our house. Call 617-824-8000 to see if the theater keeps the streak alive.

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas
“The show must go on,” says a Citi Performing Arts Center employee. Unless the state closes the roads, the 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. performances will happen. Call 617-482-9393 for further information.

Handel and Haydn Society
“We’ve only canceled one show since the Lincoln assassination,” the Society told us. “Unless there’s a state of emergency, the show will go on.” Those of you with tickets can call either Jordan Hall (617-585-1260) or the Handel and Haydn Society Box Office (617-266-3605) for updates.

If you don’t see information about the show you’re planning to see here (or you’re suddenly inspired to buy tickets) you can always check our event listings for contact information or ideas.
