Why it’s now possible to bring the world to Boston

Boston has a number of fine theatre facilities most of which are home to our celebrated local dance, opera, music, and theatre companies. Not surprisingly, these spaces are dedicated primarily to the work of these resident groups. Now, with the opening of four new performing venues under the operating umbrella of ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage, we have for the first time a variety of theatres that can host work from around the world that likely would never see the light of day in Boston were it not for Emerson College and its loving construction, re-imagining, and restoration of these four theaters.

We’re located on the edge of Boston Common within two blocks of the intersection of Tremont and Boylston Streets. It’s an incredibly lively and energizing neighborhood now that Emerson has completed its relocation from the Back Bay where it was founded in 1880 to this dynamic corner. The new Paramount Center shares common walls with an impressive Ritz condominium tower and the beautifully restored Opera House – now home to the Boston Ballet and popular Broadway road shows such as THE LION KING and WICKED.

Because Emerson is a college of arts and communications, the 2,200 students who now live and study in this wonderfully revitalized area bring a creative flair, spirit, and joy to the streets. At a recent neighborhood meeting a number of people wanted to know if Emerson was going to institute more summer programs. After the semester ends, they miss the bouyancy the students bring to their lives. We open our first season in September, come and enjoy this revitalized, and wonderfully creative neighborhood.
