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.
